The Iron Bear

The three-piece girl band, formed in high school, were sloppily playing punk covers in venues around town, years later the trio now commands a room with their presence of both heavy tones and aggressive lyrics with a combination of melodic sweetness. The members Alayna Bowen (Bass, Vocals), Greta Schroeder (Guitar, Vocals), and Esther Hines (Drums) find pull from bands such as Mazzy Star, Babes in Toyland, The Breeders, and PJ Harvey to create their own energy and sound. Basically Nancy’s music portrays the experience of being a young woman and the frustrations that come with it. Their self-titled debut album was constructed over the span of a few years with no original intent of being heard but rather as a collaborative therapeutic outlet. It is an amalgamation of personal stories touching on topics ranging from love and friendship to dissatisfaction and abuse.
