Bearings debut first two songs with new lineup additions
They also released a video for “So Damn Wrong” that shows the band performing in a parking lot on some old school cars, officially introducing their two new members.
Singer Dougie Cousins says the song was “intended to be a tongue and cheek take on one of my favorite videos ‘93 ‘til infinity’”.
“It's funny how some songs just come together. A solid change of surroundings helped focus on getting the sounds and words we felt we were right,” Cousins said.
As for “I Feel It All,” Cousins said the song happened totally naturally.
"Some songs happen so naturally it's together and formed before you really have a chance to think about it, sometimes life can be the same way,” he said. “We're so excited we were able to piece these together and get them out for our fans and ourselves before setting off on our first US tour in a good while. I'm so incredibly proud of these songs - they're an accidentally on purpose stumble into a sound that we love."
The two new tracks mark the band’s first new music since their drummer Connor Kington departed from the band in January for personal reasons. It's also the first with two recently added members—guitarist Ryan Fitz and drummer Michael Mckerracher.
The band’s last release was 2018’s Blue in the Dark. You can listen to both tracks below and see the new video for “So Damn Wrong”.
