Be The Bear is the baby of Danish/English vocalist Christina Wehage and Swedish music producer Mattias Bolin. The duo met in Gothenburg in the summer of 2009. They released their debut EP “Fireships” in the winter of 2011, following it up with the single “Bad Things” which instantly topped the iTunes charts in Sweden. Since then the duo has been celebrated internationally, with the brooding “Coffee Kids” and the sugar-sweet "Bump" being their most recent singles.
"Scandinavia once again proves to be a musical paradise ... The voice of the singer seems to swim in places recalling the best achievements of Bjork, or the charismatic voice of Florence Welch."

“Danish/English siren Christina Wehage births experimental pop with the aid of Swedish producer Mattias Bolin under the name of Be The Bear. Ever wondered what it would sound like if School of Seven Bells made love to Björk whilst on speed? New single ‘Coffee Kids’ is just that.”

"If the pop music industry in the UK has any respect for itself, Be The Bear will be hailed like Gotye or Fun. Niki and the Dove might be the latest cover story for Scandinavian pop, but that may soon shift to highlight Be The Bear and rightfully so" 5/5 - Samuel Litherland, Born Music UK
“a multcoloured melody that eschews early Bjork and Niki and the Dove. Surging forth on a joyous ride of electro pop that shoos and coos bad karma away from your body”
