On their way to debut album release, Oslo based indie alt rockers INSOMNIAC BEARS are sharing two new singles today! “1997” & “Shaky Ladders” marks the second and third single in a series of releases leading up to the band’s debut album that will be out September 9th. 2022 on Fysisk Format label. The Norwegian band’s debut widens their sparkly art rock into a wilder, more ambitious sound, locating the edge between noise and melody.
Insomniac Bears consists of multi-instrumentalist Marius Ergo (Lukestar, Kaospilot & Snöras), Rumble in Rhodos-singer Thomas Bratlie Haugland, Team Me-frontman Marius Drogsås Hagen and songwriter/violinist Magnus Moriarty.
Since their last release they have also included star boy Axel Skalstad(Krokofant ++) on drums as a permanent member, giving the group a new dimension and sound. Sure enough, this combo of players have pushed each others explorations further than before, resulting in a new musical collective to look out for.
Somewhere in between crafting pop and creating art they take us to unexplored territory with sprightly prog-rock figures and distinctly indie-sounding anthems.
Expect sharp compositions sprawling with intuitive charm and immediate melodies with a roaring largesse.
