Beartown Zodiac are an Indie-Pop collective based on the South Coast of England led by singer and songwriter David Bird-Hawkins.

After a year of travelling the world, armed with a white Flying-V Ukulele and honing his song writing abilities, David returned to the UK to perform under the name of Beartown Zodiac. Initially a solo project, in 2012 David began working with a full band - Tiff Wheaton-Green (Bass), Matt Musial (Drums) and Alison Jay (Violin/Synth) - enhancing and unlocking the full potential of his songs.

May 2013 saw the release of their debut EP Karaoke Bites. The four track EP, conceived whilst on a journey that spanned twelve countries in as many months, was released by DIY label Woodenhouse and received positive reviews by the music press.

Beartown Zodiac received decent radio airplay in the months leading up to the release, with the BBC one of their main supporters. They were invited to play a live session on The Simon Lederman Show on BBC London and enjoyed coverage on BBC Introducing: The South.

Tom Robinson of 6Music and Fresh On The Net has included Beartown Zodiac on his Freshnet Gems playlist and the band has made the Listening Post shortlist on three occasions.

With songs of wanderlust and mountains, broken I-pods and Zombies, Beartown Zodiac’s sound ranges from beautiful acoustic and violin numbers to all out guitar-soaked rock. Influences encompass Sparklehorse, Grandaddy, Blur, Magnetic Fields, Eels and everything in between.
