Here’s a tip – if all goes well, Thailand will become the next Japan, a worldwide pop culture hub whose uniqueness is rooted in its historical isolation from the rest of the colonized world. Bear Garden is the musical product of this fecund creative environment. They are a mad little electronica-twee band, who can be described as a mix between the Postal Service and Architecture in Helsinki, embellished with the Thai fetish for saccharine weirdness and flavourful melodies. Want proof? Check out their latest music video, Come With Me.
