Bear Mountain on "Everybody Wants To Rule The World":
"We were sitting in our studio one day when we were approached by an extraterrestrial space being who said he was from a far away star called Alcyone in the constellation of Taurus. He said he was there in peace to teach us this sacred dance that would help us see our true path on planet earth. We had no choice but to learn the dance, and with Scion Session's help, film this video!"

Bear Mountain is a band from Vancouver BC. Centred around the foursome of singer/songwriter Ian Bevis and guitarist Kyle Statham, Bear Mountain also includes Ian's twin brother, drummer Greg Bevis, and visual artist Kenji Rodriguez. The group build its densely layered dance music by mixing live and sampled drums, '80s-sounding keyboards, and Statham's arpeggiated, delay pedal-drenched guitar lines. Soaring on top of all of this is Ian's soulful tenor croon, often tackling the hook that, in a house track, would ordinarily be provided by a sample. This combination of electronic meets electric instrumentation gives Bear Mountain's largely dance-oriented music an organic, somewhat psychedelic, improvisational quality, as if they were playing and mixing the tracks live. Over half the songs on XO are instrumental; they're woozy, often dizzying, but each still has a melodic through-line to keep your attention, even amid disparate swirls of abstract sound. Bear Mountain's influences are definitely hard to pin down, spanning genres like R&B, jazz, Latin, orchestral pop, dance-rock, and house. This cross-genre approach means that Bear Mountain fit just as nicely next to alternative soul acts like Under the Influence of Giants and Scissor Sisters as they do next to more cutting-edge artists like Cut Copy and Frankmusik. Tracks like "Congo," "Faded," and "Sing" are uplifting, infectious club-ready cuts that move both your soul and your feet.
