Bearsuit - Princess, You're a Test
Label: Fortuna POP!
Format: CDS


Short, yet brilliant garage rock on latest single from Norwich-based indie rock group, Bearsuit

Despite its title sounding like a line of dialogue from 'EastEnders'Bearsuit have their sights set across the Atlantic. Bouncing along on a fuzzy bassline that musically suggests an escapee from the 'Nuggets' compilation of sixties garage bands, the boy-girl vocals nag away at the listener impressively, manoeuvering around its chorus and whoo-oo-oo hollers effectively. Clocking in at a concise 2:34, the track would surely be a hit single if only Radio One paid attention to guitar bands anymore.

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 !"
