The Mercury Music Award nominated Polar Bear, return in the spring of 2014 with their fifth album. Broad in scope and potent in spirit, their new music is at once more spacious and more intense than their previous work.
Led by drummer Sebastian Rochford and featuring saxophonists Pete Wareham (Melt Yourself Down, Acoustic Ladyland) and Mark Lockheart (Loose Tubes, APPJAG’s Musician Of The Year in 2010), Tom Herbert (The Invisible) on bass, as well as electronics wizard/guitarist Leafcutter John, Polar Bear will be showcasing their first new recordings since 2010.
“This is not nu jazz, acid jazz, Jamie jazz, Parky jazz, Brit jazz, beardo jazz, post–jazz or twee jazz. It’s dream jazz.” Paul Morley -Observer Music Monthly.
“The group that flung wide the jazz club windows and let fresh air into a scene” The Wire.
