[News] The 2 Bears Detail Debut LP 'Be Strong'

When not together as dance outfit Hot Chip, each of the group's members keeps the creativity flowing in other musical endeavors. Just this year, frontman Alexis Taylor has done work the About Group, Felix Martin and Al Doyle formed New Build along with their engineer Tom Hopkins, and Joe Goddard has teamed up with fellow U.K. DJ Raf Daddy to form The 2 Bears.

As The 2 Bears, the duo has remixed Death Cab for Cutie and was featured on their Keys and Codes Remix EP, released three EPs of their own, and, as was announced today, are set to release their debut LP on January 31st via DFA Records. The album, titled Be Strong, is set to release digitally on January 31st with a physical release coming later in the spring. After the jump, you can take a look at the upcoming album's track listing, as well as watch the video for "Work." The song, which is our first taste of the album, draws significant influence from 90s house, albeit adding it's own flavour. Check it out for yourself after the jump!
