Following the laudable hype after their shows at The Great Escape Festival in May, Indietroni.ca introduces Brighton trio Us Baby Bear Bones, who are the talented Puff Gandolfo (Vocals, Loops, Drums, Clarinet), Daisy Emily Warne (Bass synth, Casio, Omnichord, Samples), and Luke Phillips (Guitar, Beats, Samples, Glockenspiel).
Their somewhat ironic video for ‘Sun’ is dark and mysterious, and suggests a pining for a distant love. The video has a cult feel to it, as it follows a group of villagers searching for UBBB, who are submerged in the dirt and covered in blood. Despite the gruesome imagery, the video successfully combines the fragile moods with a euphuistic substance. The line ‘this day is done’ is repeated throughout the song and could simply be UBBB reflecting on the day passed or, as the video implies, is likely to have a darker meaning.
‘Sun’ is a disturbing yet beautiful preview of how talented the band really are, with each sound showcasing more and more enchanting layers of fragility.
