GENRE | ANGSTY ALT-ROCK
VERDICT | SPIN DIS SHIT
LABEL | INTERROBANG RECORDS
RELEASE | 6.17.13
Bear Language is homegrown right here in Boston, and before I go any further,
the adjective “homegrown” alone should have you sprinting to your nearest record store/iTunes account to buy their recent release.
Yes, technically you can listen to it for free on Soundcloud via their website, but come on now! Support local bands! Besides, it’s freaking awesome. Anyway, where was I? Oh yes, these homegrown alt-rockers premiered their debut album Rememory this week.
The past few months since their first-ever performance at SXSW this spring have proven to be a pretty thrilling year of firsts for the Boston-based trio. With vocals that fade in and out and guitar riffs that change pace as well as volume, “Meet Me Outside,” the record’s standout track, gives an accurate depiction of the album as a whole. There’s a two-minute long instrumental near the end of it that
reeks heavily (in a good way) of influences not unlike the XX, their dreamy, brooding brethren.
Laced with haunting melodies and face-melting bass lines, Rememory is an alt-rock jam session perfectly suited for the angst that lingers within us all.
