Hopefully, no polar bears were harmed in the making of this EP. Penguins Kill Polar Bears, a name that makes me somewhat scared of one of my favorite animals, is from the great country of Scotland, a place that's given plenty of solid bands in the past several years. As with the excellent band There Will Be Fireworks, Penguins Kill Polar Bears brings a post-rock edge to powerful rock music. The ambient background only brings out the best of the rest of the instrumentation. While the vocals need work, and the songs are slightly boring and repetitive, the talent within the instrumentalists suggests a lot more variety in the future. You can stream the band's music on their Myspace page here. The EP titled Vessels and Veins will be out March 22nd.
