Members: Jordi (vocals), Ignasi (keyboards & synths), Carles Domingo (drums) and...
Salamandra, Espacio Movistar, Apolo, Razzmatazz2, Sala Vivaldi or la Farga de l'Hospitalet are some of the venues that experienced live the full power of this electronic pop duet. Bearlin took their time to work on their live shows, memorize magic on stage and deeply enjoy the creativity coming out of itâ¦ Until they finally settled, took a deep breath and uttered the magic word: LP.
Ignasi Calvo at the piano and keyboards, Jordi Rabascall as singer and both in compositions stemming from these two distinct but complementary mentalities. That is the Bearlin creative core. Their influences are many. We may talk about renowned artists like Tears For Fears, Depeche Mode, U2, Pink Floyd and also current bands like Scissor Sisters, Ulrich Schnauss or Mercury Rev. But we should not discard the trace left by people like David Bowie, Pulp, New Order, Simple Minds and Roxy Music. Styles like chillout and British pop give the finishing touch to this sort of influences, always full of new surprises. Both members knew each other when they were already musicians, 8 years ago, and decided to bet for their own path.
Bearlin were runners up at the XII PopRock Villa de San Adrian festival (2007), Heineken Greenspace (2006), Proyecto Demo (2004) and the CityTV Sinnamon Productions contest City Muac (2003). They played at Club 100 from Cadena 100, at the Espacio Movistar, as support band for Anne Clark at the Apolo in Barcelona, and in many venues and towns across Spain, where they always had good reviews (Computer Music, Clave Profesional, Diario de Navarra, etc.) Their last piece was DJ Abel Almena song I Want More, presented at the Millenium discotheque (Girona) last January and included in several Spanish hit collections (Technics the original sessions and Maxima Fm compilation).
