Vancouver, Canada brings Bear Mountain, an electronic ambient dance group. A mix between Tycho and Cut Copy, Bear Mountain brings fresh, lush, captivating sounds from tropical drums beats and house-drenched kicks, to wavering synths and chopped vocals.
Man Without Country is a modern duo, truly without country. Born in Wales but not “from” there, this duo emits a sound of un-belonging, transcendence from stability, and a compelling world-as-synthscape. There is a dark/uplifting paradox presented from their glacial guitar rips, eerie synth pulses, haunting vocals, and atmospheric sonic palette much like their influences: The Knife, When Saints Go Machine, and The Field – but Man Without Country incorporates and puts much more importance on the lyrical aspects of their compositions.
