British jazz band Polar Bear are to play a Dublin date next month.

The Seb Rochford-led band, who incorporate elements of electronica, funk and drum 'n' bass into their music, achieved success with their second album 'Held On the Tips of Fingers', which was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize in 2005.

Their third album will be released next month, and they'll play Crawdaddy on July 18th in support of it.

Tickets are €15 and on sale now.
