Be Free by Polar Bear
Formats: Digital (PB 2)
Release Date: 3 March 2014
‘Be Free’ is the first single to be taken from Polar Bear’s forthcoming fifth album In Each And Every One. Dexterous fractured rhythms and playful interlocking horns combine to form an ever-evolving entry point to an album that will take the listener far and wide across deep emotional terrain. It is the perfect introduction, showcasing the inventive drumming for which band leader Sebastian Rochford has made his name.
In the 10 years since their debut album, Polar Bear have marked themselves out as a tirelessly innovative, exciting and progressive band that has truly transcended genre. The single signposts the new direction Polar Bear have taken, very much the product of time spent experimenting in the studio with propulsive rhythms and the creative use of space.
Exclusive to the digital EP are an alternative take of the single ‘Be Free Be Free’ and a skeletal remix from enigmatic young London-based producer Gerry Read.
