Those Bear Paws, is made up of Andrew Potter from local Newcastle band Tissue Culture and Andrew Hayes, who make music which they describe as “morbid folk”.
Their EP is made up of four tracks all stripped back acoustic songs. Each song tells a story, “The first song is about growing up, the second song is about adolescence, the third song is about dying and the last song is about reflection,” Andrew from the band explains.
The fist track is an oddly upbeat yet melancholic rambling song. While the second track “Tres Miserables” is a haunting track full of teenage angst, with plenty of echo and reverb, which amplifies the rough vocals against the solo acoustic guitar. Out of the whole EP Innocence is the stand out track, it is a pleasant track to listen to, with its melodic tune that alters in pace and tone to achieve a well rounded sound. Lyrically the EP will pull at your heartstrings as demonstrated in ‘When I Die’, “I sincerely hope when I die there’s a lovers hand in twined in mine” which reflects the emotive and poetic sense of the songs. Overall the EP rather than leaving you depressed leaves you in a tranquil and reflective mood.
