Minus The Bear
2012, Summer. Seattle, Washington, something mucho significant was built by 5 dudes’ touch. It is called Infinity Overhead. When the air filled with this piece, heat, light, noise and color to be transformed into stream and traveled through the air with the time shift. Pull and push, depth versus altitude. This romance is like having a high tech air-in choccolata from east village. Once you put the cioccolato inside the mousse, something seeps out all around and it smoothly embraces everything they meet. During this process, all the elements start to kick in, sweetness, bitterness, sourness, and saltiness. Flavor dominates all over the mousse. It clings around and soaks in quietly, then fragrance starts to evaporate through tiny sky inside the dark, merge back into the air. Signals flow to the brain and it delivers the joy to the body through the tide. All commotion appears on the movement makes the body sweats and shivers. After a while all these processes change its shapes and falls into mind, realizes it taste like soil in the wildness or unseen experience turns into little piece of unknown memory we might see tomorrow.
Elements to become alive, things might have to go through some process, mashed, squeezed, roasted, fermented, hydrated, blended, and purified. When the time starts to lose its sense, things will slip out from nowhere or somewhere and start to shape. It’s obvious but invisible, like instinctually tracing the path of light waves and particles. It looks like Minus the Bears’ fifth window made the light change into the color eternally.

Let's start from the beginning. Well, almost at least. We are a band. We hail from the more isolated parts of northern Sweden. We played in bands before and we've played together much longer than this new moniker. We are 5 friends that dabble in post-punk/dystopic pop or some brand of alternative rock music. We did a couple of records in our native tounge under the name of Invasionen but when we decided to take this globally we felt that a change in language and a new name would be in place. Welcome to our world, we really hope that you do enjoy it as much as we do.
Slow Bird is an American indie rock trio, created in Seattle, Washington during March of 2011. The musical collaboration was conceived by Joshua Dore (guitar), Matthew Street (drums, bass), and Jennae Quisenberry (Fender Rhodes, vocals.) Intensely dynamic, the composition flows with constantly evolving tones and interludes which ascend into pivotal zeniths of emotion. The soaring guitar leads compliment the haunting vocals which constantly cascade into visceral sentiment; submerged with rich bass tones and driving drums. The experience elucidates the audience into full attention, the termination of which leaves the listener plummeting back into tumultuous reality.
Listed by DLIST magazine as one of Seattle's up and coming artists to watch in 2013, Slow Bird is an experience you won't want to miss as their impact deepens across the northwestern music scene.
