Bear Mountain Everybody WantsBear Mountain, the electronic-pop foursome out of Vancouver, officially released yesterday their cover and video of Tears for Fears’ classic, “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” (they played this on their tour last year). The melodies stay true to the ’80s hit, but they add their own personal touches by adding more synth, electronic beats, and a more noticeable guitar riff. It’s a great cover of a great song.

The video is also impressive as it was done in a single take. While we can see Ian and Greg Bevis and Kyle Statham (who is decked out in the hippie, rainbow shirt), we have to assume Kenji Rodriguez is the lead dancer (the one with the UFO contraption on his head). After all, Kenji does have the most rhythm in the band.

Bear Mountain will be at Osheaga this weekend, so if you’ll be attending catch them. They’re a terrific young band on the rise.
