This is an archive of the band profile for Bipolar Bear.

Five-piece who formed together in their first year at Nottingham Uni. Through shared influences and ideas of what is perceived as good started playing together. In the three years based in Nottingham we played across nearly all of the cities venues and played with such bands as The Maccabees, The Wave Pictures and Wild Beasts; and recording several EPs. They have also spread their wings and played gigs in Bristol and Sheffield. In the last 6 months, half the band has moved to Leeds and now as experienced practisioners in the melodic and the melancholy expect to make it their new home.
