Sunday Session with ‘We Raise Bears’ @ The Hot Spot


We Raise Bears bring their unique sound to The Hot Spot as part of an upcoming Irish Tour. We Raise Bears’ music has continued to gain critical attention, with BBC Radio recently attributed it with having “such a uniqueness in sound, a character, a confidence and an intelligence as well”. Their now recognisably poignant and political lyricism has been described as “stunning” (Dublin Concerts).

In November 2016, the band released a well-received debut EP, which gained airplay across BBC radio, RTE radio 1, 2FM and TXFM, as well as on Irish and UK regional stations. We Raise Bears have performed at festivals that include Hard Working Class Heroes, Other Voices, Canalaphonic, Electric Picnic, Vantastival, Ones to Watch and regional arts festivals. They have delighted in headlining at venues around the country and also in sharing stages with acts like We Cut Corners, Cathy Davey and Conor O’Brien.

“Beguiling…new band for potential future hit parade” – Jim Carroll, The Irish Times

“Definitely a band to keep an eye on, they immediately stand out from the crowd” – Chris Jones, Music Journalist

“We Raise Bears manage to create a new sound that is thoroughly their own” – Dee Reddy, TXFM
