Bearsuit - Muscle Belt
Label: Fantastic Plastic Records
Format: CDS


Bouncing indie pop on new download only single from the ever brilliant Bearsuit

Bearsuit just keep getting better and better while keeping hold of what made them great in the first place. New single ‘Muscle Belt’ would feel right at home on previous album ‘Oh:Io’, which saw their signature clatter pop sound become tighter, with stronger melodies and greater focus. Propelled by bouncing bassline and blipping keyboards before a soaring indie disco chorus, ‘Muscle Belt’ features all the things that make Bearsuit great – the chants, some lovely harmonies from Ian Ross and Lisa Horton, the right mix of noise and melodies. Hopefully we’ll get more of the same brilliance from the band as the year goes on.

Bearsuit - London Toynbee Arts Centre, 22/2/02
Norwich's Bearsuit are "musically unprincipled and inadvertently messy", but new writer Gary Wollen finds a recent London show to be "gorgeous, sublime and damn fine !"
