The Academic have just released a new single titled Bear Claws, and it could very well be your new summer anthem. The infectious song is full of everything you need in a favorite song, catchy chorus, smooth guitars that glide into a wonderful bridge solo, a steady beat of drums, relatable lyrics,  and oh…did I mention the catchy chorus?

Listen below:


The band had this to say about the new song:
“Bear Claws is a song about when you are coming of age, that period of your life when you’re just starting to socialize, getting out there and doing it. We all do stupid things at that time of our lives, not thinking about the longer-term implications. It’s also about asking people to be honest and open rather than holding back, which in adolescence is easier said than done.”

You can usually find me traveling, queuing, or at barricade for a band. I am most likely doing all three things in a day. If I'm not at a concert you can also find me digging through crates for that coveted black disc, I'm an avid vinyl lover and I have the receipts to prove it.
