"Raincoats & Gold Album Review"

Having two vocalists certainly helps the variety and the pair's songwriting certainly guides them to who is singing what. Brian Bringelson's vocals lend themselves to the Pop Rock excellence, whilst Katy Pearson provides a different direction.

Her Voice Of An Angel vocals complement the moodier and perhaps Folk moments. Pearson also adds some great moments to the up tempo Pop. The album seems split in to two halves and so would lend itself beautifully to vinyl. -




Anchor & Bear is a four piece folk/rock band from Ventura California, fronted by the songwriting team of Pearson & Bringelson. Anchor & Bear recorded their debut album in 2016. They've since put out 3 records; "Raincoats and Gold" their sophomore album, an EP titled "Arrows" and recently released their 3rd full length record "No More Nights On the Roof"

In between recording sessions the band has played many high profiled shows up and down California Coast. Some of the venues Anchor & Bear have played include: Hotel Cafe (LA), The Watermark (Ventura), Sofar Sounds (SF), Discovery (Ventura), Whiskey Richards (Santa Barbara), San Fransisco Coffee Fest.

Anchor & Bear's music is full of melodic hooks and indie rock twists, paying musical homage to their greatest influences while cultivating a sound that's all their own.
