The Bunny the Bear: Food Chain

Most guff from PR people and record companies is pretty dry with the occasional over-the-top use of hyperbole but The Bunny the Bear's people have obviously been taking creative writing lessons recently and here's their description of the duo's work;" Close your eyes and let's take a journey to a plush, green forest, with the sun shining bright and birds chirping with glee. You are strolling along, admiring the calm scenery around you, when suddenly, a horrifying, high-pitched scream breaks the silence. Breaking out in a run, you search frantically for the animal that had expelled this bone-chilling yelp, only to find a bunny, with hellfire in his cold, doe eyes, as it continues to scream bloody murder. Rubbing your eyes in disbelief, you hear an entrancingly clean melody in the distance. Turning the corner, you are face-to-face with a monstrous bear, and while you should be terrified, you are intrigued by the animals, listening to a sound you had never heard before. Curious, you sit and listen as the bunny and the bear fill the forest air with their symphony of sounds. "Wow! That's intriguing is it not?

It has to be said that the combination of screamer Matthew Tybor and clean singer Chris Hutka makes for some highly interesting sounds. At times they feel quite commercial along the lines of say, the Bloodhound Gang (without the jokey element) and at other times, highly uncommercial and dark. Some may change "dark" for "unfocussed" and there is a sense that there are more ideas going on here and that the proverbial kitchen sink is being thrown at these thoughts but at their best ("The Seeds We Sow") The Bunny the Bear are highly entertaining.
