Be The Bear – I Don’t Want To

The Swedish art-pop artist Be The Bear is back with her first single of 2018, “I Don’t Want To”. An atmospheric swell introduces the song before diving into an energetic verse. Be The Bear’s vocals are light, gliding about the production & interacting with background vocal layers. There’s a quirkiness to the track, equal parts retro & experimental, but never compromising a fierce contemporary pop sensibility.

This song is a perfect introduction to Be The Bear & a welcome return for this energetic artist. With “I Don’t Want To” being featured on Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist, I’m sure this song will be blasting from cars as we approach the final weeks of this hot summer.
