Industrial music lovers Bipolar Bear apparently sound nothing like their idols, instead their music is laced with guitar clashes, banshee drums and rhythmic distorted vocals which wind up and tease into melodic low releases, more down tempo and painterly than hard-faced angst. The band remains low-key, with blurred out faces on press photographs; hype is lame…
