Polar Bear

With a second Mercy Prize nomination under their belts, Polar Bear are living up to their sobriquet of “London’s most acclaimed jazz outfit” (The Quietus). Their fifth album, In Each and Every One, featured “delightful rhythm games on delicate sax motifs, distant hoots and synthesised vocals, set against Seb Rochford’s clappy drum grooves or soft clatters” (The Guardian). They perform following the release of their sixth album.
