Brown Bear


Brown Bear – ‘Was That It?’

Listen to

Brown Bear are from Brisbane and write good, solid songs. Sometimes they try to get all clever with glitchy programming, but for that we should cut them a bit of slack – after all, they did meet whilst studying a tertiary music course.

‘Was That It’ is a little guilty of this whole ‘glitches=clever music’ thing, but is saved by the simple but effective piano part and Col Hockey’s lyrics and vocal melodies. Excellent arrangements and production don’t hurt it either – every band attempting this sort of music should have a film composer as a guitarist.

With Hockey having returned from a year in London, Brown Bear is currently raising funds and writing songs for their debut album.
