Hailing from Brooklyn, New York, Grizzly Bear are a four piece psychedelic/experimental band. Grizzly Bear’s music is seductive and intimate, deep with hazy-eyed choruses, whistles, piano, banjo, and several woodwind instruments. In their music, melody and ambiance are necessary complements.
Grizzly Bear was originally the solo project of Edward Droste (vocals/guitar), who recorded their debut album Horn of Plenty at home. The record was originally meant for his friends, but it eventually circulated and got a proper release in 2004, this time with the help of Christopher Bear (drums/vocals).
