Alphabet Bands ♥: “Come one, come all, join us on a ride to the sugar coated brightness of Be The Bear. Enter through the candy cane archway and gaze in wonder at this Willy Wonka world in front of you. If you like your pop a little bitter to the taste, a bit darker and heartbroken then be prepared, this is going to be like taking a Care Bear stare to your cold cold heart.”

Born Music UK ♥: “Scandanavian Be The Bear release more sparkly dream pop in the form of latest single ‘Bump’. A sugar coated electro gem with all the quirk of Bjork and the awesome vocals to match. Christina’s dual heritage of Danish and English give her voice a truly unique sound which many would find hard to imitate or assimilate, therefore Be The Bear is in a great position when it comes to releases and touring as her sound really stands out in the UK market.”

The Sound Of Confusion, UK ♥: “After the beefier pop of ‘Coffee Kids’ and the gentle fade of ‘Bad Things’, this new release sees her taking her electronic alt-pop to a lighter and more honeyed place. Production-wise ‘Bump’ is fairly twee and makes no attempt to hide the fact. The shrill vocals are cute and cuddly and and the electronics are sparkly and primitive but they combine together well. She must be stacking up the tunes by now, so maybe we’ll get an album before the year’s out, and with the latest Passion Pit album passing by without anyone giving it a second look there could be a Be The Bear-shaped gap in the market to be filled for those who like their pop alternative and with an extra teaspoon of sugar.”


Australian acid stag ♥: “Swedish siren Christina Wehage births experimental pop with 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.” ♥: “Swedish Be The Bear encompass everything that is so good about Swedish music. The smooth pop-electro beats, the soaring female vocal, and the infectious melodies. Be The Bear does sound a little like Niki & the Dove, Bjork or a Swedish version of Purity Ring. But comparisons aside, I do think she holds her own, and with songs like ‘Coffee Kids’ it’s easy to see why I say that. The song which is her latest single begins with woozy vocal over piano chords but soon explodes into glittery dance beats.”

The Sound Of Confusion ♥: “Following on from the super alt-pop of last single ‘Bad Things’, Be The Bear are somehow hiding under the radar of much of the UK’s music press, when really she’s producing the exact sort of music we should be doing our damnedest to promote and bring decent pop back to the forefront of our insipid commercial music scene. Surely it’s only a matter of time until NME Magazine, BBC Radio 1 and all the other outlets currently playing it remarkably safe take a leap of faith and embrace what she is doing. The whole song is a step up in many ways; more contagious, more radio-friendly, more universal in appeal and in possession of some serious crossover appeal. So come on UK, there’s much more to the pop scene than big US female stars and arrogant rap dinosaurs, Be The Bear is proving that with a glint in her eyes and a fire in her belly, plus she has the tunes to get the public on board. It’s time to give yourselves a slap in the face and venture beyond the usual suspects.”


“If the pop music industry in the UK has any respect for itself, it [Bad Things] 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

“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. Being among the first (musical) pioneers to discover this act gives us good reason to feel proud.”
– Music Is, Poland

“Be the Bear is indie pop vocalist Christina Wehage (and that’s an understatement since she cover a multitude of genres) from Gothenburg, Sweden. She released her first EP Fireships last December but has now been drawing some attention with her new single “Bad Things.” It’s an incredibly catchy indie pop song, tailor-made for the summer. We’ll surely be hearing more from Be The Bear in the near future.” – Hot Shit

“I feel like there are no words to describe some songs. I feel like serenity and sincerity can join our souls through music. I feel like Be The Bear is one of few acts that really knows how to do that, so simple and pure. Listen to the lyrics, listen to Christina’s voice, and if you’re lucky you’ll understand what I’m saying. 5/5”
– Play My Tape, Portugal

“Be The Bear’s tasty brand of electro pop had me hooked on my very first listen. Her voice slays me.”
– Syffal, USA


“Be The Bear just released her debut EP entitled Fireships, with which she is seeking to position herself as one of the most exciting acts in recent years from this region of the world … A mixture of sticky sweet electropop and acoustic elements that makes Be The Bear stand next to other acts like The Knife or iamamiwhoami, only Be The Bear contains color grades much higher.” – Indietheka, Spain

“Be The Bear’s music is what you’ll have in your headphones while lying in the hammock this summer. It syncs with nature and creates a harmonious interaction between voice, music and nature that attracts the free, simple and summer crazy. It makes me want to run barefoot through the paddock, leap into the water and put berries on a straw. It makes me want to Be The Bear” –

“It is quite a set of pipes that vocalist Christina Wehage has been blessed with, her remarkable voice getting a full workout on the acoustic, folk-tinged ‘Howl’ … Final track ’2 Souls’ is probably a good example of what Be the Bear is all about, Scandic pop with an experimental edge all underpinned with Wehage’s fine voice.” – InMyKitchen

Be The Bear released her first unsigned recording entitled ‘My New Glow’ on April 1, 2011. The single features the song “My New Glow” and a re-recorded, partially re-written version of “Heart On A Line”.

In October 2011 Be The Bear donated the song “Heart On A Line” to the Swedish charity organisation “Ung Cancer” (Young Cancer).
