Sunbears!

Ian Troy Stains

Playlist

  • "Give Love A Try"
  • "Together Forever"

Sunbears!, an electro-pop duo from Jacksonville, Fla., creates a sound that incorporates the cosmological contemplations of The Flaming Lips, John Lennon's simple-yet-dynamic musings on the meaning of love, and the Plastic Ono Band's positively reinforced psychedelic rock. Formed by Jonathan Berlin and Jared Bower in 2008, Sunbears! has brought its highly visual performances and boundless energy to the same stage as Mates of State and Black Kids, as well as the Yo Gabba Gabba tour.

Hear two songs from the band's forthcoming record, You Will Live Forever, on today's installment of World Cafe: Next.
