NRVS LVRS spin a dreamscape of internal narratives that envelops exactly what it means to live in San Francisco. Singer Andrew Gomez’ sparse lyrics meddle in a blur of abstractions that teeter incessantly between starry-eyed hope and the type of anxiety that develops on the coldest night of the year, when the city has gone to sleep and you're left awake with only yourself to confront.
A skewed sense of romanticism, love for cheap alcohol (though only because it is all that is affordable) and a fear of wasting youth, Skyler Warren started Bear Call alone in his bedroom in late 2011. Three years and a number of failed attempts and broken hearts later, something resembling a real band was formed with the help of Nikk Moreno and Eric "Moose knucks" Mohammed. Together, these three lads are attempting to go the distance and capture the lo-fi sound that no one in San Francisco (except for everyone in the mid 2000s) has captured before before. Fuzzy, reverb drenched guitars? Check. Driving, heavy bass? Check. Loud, hard hitting drums? Check. Lyrics about love, frustration, and pissing yourself in a one night stands bed? Check. Drawing influence from San Francisco garage rock heroes like Thee Oh Sees and Ty Segall, Bear Call is searching for a way to stay 20-something forever while evading all responsibility and forever chasing an excuse to wake up hungover.
