2011 – The Bunny The Bear – If You Don't Have Anything Nice to Say

Are you angry? You will be after you hear this. I was introduced to The Bunny The Bear this week, and wanted to share them with you. They fall in to the genre of post-hardcore, combined with some electronica (or what Wikipedia is calling “Electropop”). Reaching higher and higher up the scale, with a voice similar to Claudio Sanchez of Coheed and Cambria, “The Bear” compliments “The Bunny,” who growls his way through songs unapologetically.

There are songs I like better than the video embedded above for C’est Pas Si Lion, but I think the song does a fantastic job of showcasing how the band is a well constructed self-juxtaposition. The band members are clearly very talented, and wouldn’t have to rely on such a strange gimmick as plastic animal masks, but they stick with it – and it adds to the eerie factor that I think suits the month of October quite well.

Clear the trees / Then you’ll see through to me / I’m rotting on the ocean floor / Where seeds of grass abhor their situation” is sang and screamed in what combines in to a hauntingly elegant song. The band is original in many ways, and although not “my usual” and only something I’ve just discovered, I actually enjoy it quite it a bit, and would encourage readers here to give them a sample and try to broaden your own musical horizons with a little bit of The Bunny The Bear..
