"Angel" should have been the song of the summer!

I care about real music

It's August, no body even knows this song. I can't get it out of my head. Big Joe can do no wrong. Download it! If you love to dance, this will move you. You will not be disappointed. Let hope the rest of the album can match it. Luv them 2 Bears...

Get Out!


I cannot stop listening to Get Out and Run Run Run. Both songs go through several phases and hit some incredible grooves midway through. The 2 Bears! We love you! More please.

Make the title track available separately!


Please make the title track "The Night is Young" available separately for purchase. I love the song and don't feel it's right that you must purchase the entire album just to get it. Thanks.

About The 2 Bears

The 2 Bears are a collaboration between producer Raf Rundell, co-founder of the 1965 label, and Joe Goddard of Hot Chip. The two crossed paths while DJ'ing a London party hosted by the latter's Greco-Roman Soundsystem collective. Later the duo teamed to host Follow the Bears, a program for Ministry of Sound Radio, and went about replicating some of the Detroit techno and Chicago house they had been playing, with Goddard making beats and Rundell singing. During 2010 and 2011, they released four EPs on Southern Fried. Be Strong, their first album, appeared in January 2012 through Southern Fried in the U.K. and DFA in the U.S. Rundell and Goddard drew inspiration from their travels in South Africa for their second album, The Night Is Young, which featured sessions recorded with local artists at the studio of BLK JKS' Tshepang Ramoba. ~ Jason Lymangrover
