She Bears- 10 Year Anniversary
She Bears- 10 Year Anniversary
What began 10 years ago as a seven-piece college band in Athens, Ohio has matured into a full-forced indie rock foursome. Despite changing a few band members and relocating to Columbus, Ohio, She Bears have maintained a high level of musical creativity with their unique songwriting and infectious energy. The remaining Bears (Pence, Douglas, Franz, and Eiler) infuse elements of guitar, bass, drums, synth, vocals, and glockenspiel to create a modern alternative indie rock sound which they refer to as “Slacker Pop.”

She Bears released a full-length album, I Found Myself Asleep in 2010, and a 3-track EP, We Claimed to be Statues in 2012. Most recently, the Bears have been putting the final touches on their first full-length album as a four-piece, which was released in January, 2014, followed by another tour in Spring 2014. Expect the album to be full of driving progressions layered with intricate riffs that are discreetly blended behind daydream-inducing vocals, and expect the tour to be a raucous party of celebration and enjoyment; afterall that’s what She Bears do best. It’s really no surprise how quickly they gain new fans wherever they tour; their collective sound reflects the generational moods and tones of the alternative -indie-rock loving youth of the early 21st Century.

Driven by expansive dynamics, infectious melodies, and shimmering soundscapes, NIGHTS winds through grooves of crashing rhythm and slicing, textural guitars. Ambient psychedelia juxtaposed with haunting, melancholic vocals spawns chilling performances reminiscent of early Smashing Pumpkins and My Bloody Valentine. NIGHTS enchants audiences by shifting from soothing dream-pop to aggressive rock.
Fronting Nights is visual artist Jenna Fournier, whose soft, ethereal vocals and sparkling guitar float in extreme contrast to the roar emanating from the band. Guitarist Frankie Maraldo combines the clever manipulation of billowing, swirling sound effects with a raw, histrionic performance. His sonic chaos is anchored by the precision of Chris Dalman's hammering drums intertwined with the band's bassist/synthesist Vincenzo Mauer's emotive playing. Mauer provides a saturated, lower end pulse and melodic counterpoint to Fournier's poignant and whimsical lyrics.
NIGHTS' debut Tragic Hero Records/Warner Music Group release Whisper was recorded by Jim Stewart and mixed by legendary producer, Jim Wirt (Incubus, Fiona Apple) at Crushtone Studios in Cleveland, Ohio. Their sound, not easily defined, captivates a wide spectrum of listeners, inviting you into dreams, desires, and a musical journey set to expand aural horizons.
