NEW EP : No Plan Survives First Contact

Deze Brusselse band neemt ons mee op een trip van liefde, plezier en emoties en is het krachtigste dat ze ooit gemaakt hebben.

van den Bear, une sonorité qui inspire les grands espaces, la nature, la déconnexion....

« No Plan Survives First Contact » se décline en cinq titres particulièrement addictifs.
Les arrangements lumineux de « Fade To Black » et de « Spectacles » ou les atmosphères délicieusement sombres de « Colour Me » n’y sont clairement pas étrangers non plus.

★★★★ S’emballer sur des premiers EP semble être devenu un hobby à plein temps par ici. Mais quand on a une telle densité en 5 morceaux, c’est compliqué de cacher son enthousiasme.

van den Bear komt met een geluid dat gelijk staat aan The National, Radiohead en tal van andere goden.

van den Bear is a dark pop alternative post rock band from Brussels.
With influences ranging from The National or Radiohead to TV on the Radio with some hints of The Black Lips or The Brian Jonestown Massacre, van den Bear is bringing the musical atmospheres and poetic lyrics to the forefront.van den Bear hopes to make you travel, they invite you to go astray.van den Bear’s new EP No Plan Survives First Contact was recorded, mixed and produced by Reinhard Vanbergen (Girls in Hawaii, dEUS, High Hi, School Is Cool,…).
Full of new energies, the Brussels band is very excited to bring to life these new songs that were written for the stage.
The main theme of the EP is the way you can communicate with the person you love in various situations. Either when they are far away (A Conversation with a Twist, Rabbit in the Paint) or when you are trying to be the person they perceive you to be (Colour Me).
A cinematic dimension continues to drive this EP (Fade to Black and A Conversation with a Twist) and the love and inspiration brought by happy loneliness and wide spaces keeps on feeding the atmosphere of the songs (Spectacles).
Hannah De Corte and Tatiana Vanhelmont elevate and lighten the atmosphere of the EP by bringing new textures, contrast and dialogue to the somber side of van den BearWith a new line up, van den Bear is exploring new horizons and you are invited for the journey. A journey of love, fun, emotion and atmosphere, more powerful than ever; still wanting to lead you astray; still trying to communicate with non bears.
