Microindie Description: "In an era when almost everything is quite like something else, Bearsuit are not quite like anything."

–John Peel BBC Radio 1

Stop-start boy-girl twee-rock cutie-killer six-piece with everything from cinematic waltzes to catchy electro disco and hard punk screaming riot grrl noise. A mix of Belle and Sebastian, Huggy Bear, and Sonic Youth with electronic twists and turns, and screamy art punk.

Since playing their first gig in 2001, the band have notched up three Festive 50 top five hits and three Radio 1 sessions on the legendary John Peel show.

Festive 50:
Chargr #2 2004
Itsuko Got Married #5 2003
Drinkink #30 2002
Hey Charlie, Hey Chuck #4 2001

In 2004 the six-piece took their tunes to Sweden's finest art-rock noise-pop festival Emmaboda where they played alongside Kaito and Deerhoof, before playing dates in Amsterdam with Magoo. The band are now due to release their debut album Cat Spectacular! in America in February 2005 with a tour of the states later in the year.

With five singles, an EP, one album, and a variety of outlandish stage gear - blood soaked prom dresses, 'nurses of death' outfits and silver bear-bot wear to name but a few - Bearsuit are certainly a band to catch if you can.
