“Seriously, we coined the term way before we found the article. It’s absolutely true though, we agree with it and take it proudly into account as an official explanation of what such a bear might represent.” Both co-founders, who were born, live and create in Poland, Szymon Danis and Kuba Mitoraj, claim to have been subconsciously looking for each other for years. “We’ve been in countless bands over the years. They were studio projects, live bands, dead bands, undead bands, cool bands and last but not least, also sh*tty bands.
And we’ve been waiting for the opportunity to screw around with sound, to such an extent, like, forever.”, which of course proves to be true, as we listen to the songs and get kind of confused. The musical roots of both of the Bears explain a lot about their twisted musical ways. Szymon, a.k.a. [d’] is a long time creator of post-industrial, metal and electronica, among others, with his band and.remix engine, CO.IN. Kuba on the other hand is a graduate jazz musician and is known to have played with countless jazz, rock and pop bands in Poland. Where do styles as different as these meet? They meet in the music of the Bipolar Bears. “Why do people admire Bjork, Beck, Mike Patton, Radiohead or Trent Reznor? Because these people actually create something.
Their music is actual art, it’s unique and it affects our lives to a greater extent than the music of repeatable, sh*tty artists, who compulsively try to follow trends instead of creating new ones.” And so the story began. Further down the road, the Bears discovered the joy of expanding their line-up by three friendly souls - Hedejk (keys, programming) Grześ Posłuszny (bass) and Sowa (drums) and in 2011, together they completed their follow-up "Przestępstwa" ("Fellonies"), a more rock-based album (however still full of surprises) recorded completely in Polish.
