‘be strong’ ducks & weaves to the myriad sounds of the city of london, as the 2 bears raf daddy & joe goddard (hot chip) pursue the perfect party record.

the title track - a paean to everyone from steely dan to the wu tang clan via the beach boys & the art of noise – sets down the blueprint for the 2 bears sound. raf & joe met through a party scene that saw them share deck duties at the legendary greco-roman parties. upon venturing into the studio in an attempt to replicate some of the records that they’d lost themselves in the night before, raf found himself laying down vocals over joe’s skipping, bassomatic backing tracks. “dance music but not as we know it. they mix together two-step, pop, trip-hop, hip-hop, garage & rave & when it all comes together it sounds like something you’ve never heard before & never want to stop hearing” – alt.sounds.
