Israeli Duo The Well Bears Create Perfectly Packaged Alt Pop Rock

New AA side “UFO / Song 8” set to put The Well Bears on a global stage

A software engineer meets a music producer named Shay Moshe Moshe, and together they found The Well Bears, a half cynical and half serious musical project that tells the story of a man who is abducted by aliens and finds love.

Ron Welber, the software engineer who has nothing to do with singing whatsoever, is determined to stimulate a more serious public discourse on UFOs and aliens through music. Hence he wrote a song about UFO abductions. The original plan was for someone else to sing the song, but during production Shay decided that the best person to sing it was actually Ron, who had the message and the vision.

UFO tells a classic abduction story, and sounds like it was made in the ’70s with some contemporary innovations. The style is alternative rock, but it can be said that even in this aspect it remains true to its name as a kind of musical UFO.
