Twin Bears - Angel Bread EP

Growing up in Sheffield, pretentions to putting together a laddy guitar group must feel forever overshadowed by the Arctic Monkeys, every aspect and component judged against the Mardy Bum stars and the sea-change they helped usher in some half a decade ago. Thankfully, Twin Bears sound nothing like the Arctic Monkeys – no, they fall far more within the Vaccines/Maccabees/Howler sweep of things; angular, rough-edged indie ditties that encompass schooldays brouhaha and teenage phases. Libertines-tinged By The River is a particular highlight of the band’s Angel Bread EP, while You Got The Fire sees them on a more sonically adventurous tilt, a band not content to be confined by their predecessors.
