#MusicMonday : Light It Up With Eliza and the Bear

October 12, 2015

Lately, I’ve been slacking off on delivering the daily posts.  When it comes to writing, I can’t force myself to come up with something to talk about, especially if I lack the inspiration to do so.  I ended up spending a lot of time checking out local gigs, and found myself immersing in the music scene.  Plato once said:


“Music is a moral law.  It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.”

On top of that, music creates this sudden awareness of the present moment.  After catching a show for City of the Sun, this sudden fleet of inspiration reminded me of a time that I last felt this way by another band — Eliza and the Bear.  Eliza and the Bear is a five-piece indie, rock band from London that formed in 2011.  The band includes James Kellegher (vocals/guitar), Callie Noakes (vocals, guitar), Martin Dukelow (guitar), Chris Brand (bass), and Paul Kevin Jackson (drums).  Since then they had published the following songs: Brother Boat, Upon the North, and Friends.  With great lyrics and instrumentals, they’ve created a unique sound that is comparable to the likes of The Lumineers and Of Monster and Men.  They’ve debuted an EP that included tracks like Light It UpLet Us Be Young, Talk, and It Gets Cold.  Just recently this past year, they’ve released Make It On My Own and Lion’s Heart on VEVO.  To give you a sense of who they are, check out the videos to some of my favorite tracks below:


While Eliza and the Bear continue their tour across Europe, they’ve also been busy debuting their first album so I’m hoping they’ll set foot on U.S. soil pretty soon!  If you’re having some #MondayBlues, take a listen to their tracks at the following links below!  It will sure cheer you up, I promise!
