Über Grizzly Bear
Grizzly Bear began their careers as lo-fi tape loopers nosing their way through cobwebbed corners of the folk underground. But by the end of the '00s the Brooklyn band would become icons of a beatific, post-acoustic style of psychedelic pop, fusing Beach Boys-inspired euphoria with digital processing and recombinant studio tactics. Originally a bedroom project of Boston's Edward Droste, the band eventually grew to quartet size, bringing on board the multi-instrumentalists Christopher Bear, Daniel Rossen and Chris Taylor, who between them make use of a battery of percussion, acoustic string instruments, reeds and electronics. All the members sing, often all together, and as the band has matured, its complex harmonies have become an increasingly important component of Grizzly Bear's sound.
