Bear Driver :: "Never Never"
Though Bear Driver describe their music as "surfer slacker pop" and this isn't necessarily untrue, it says nothing of how hard it is to craft warm guitars and a slow-drive pop arrangement like "Never Never". What will remind American audiences of Real Estate and other hazed out slow-punk bands, the opening movements are only loosely connected. The chorus, a rising and falling slice of inexorability, like breathing, rings out before returning to those same, signature guitars. Again, Bear Driver might like you to believe they aren't trying, but it simply can't be true.
