We’ve heard Summer anthems from Pop, R&B and Hip Hop artists, but Bearing Torches are the Alt Rock collective to brave the sunny frontier with their latest single Summer Break.
Yet, I have to say, I no way anticipated such an archaic soundscape to be created by a fresh faced collective. Put it this way, Bruce Springsteen fans are going to be in heaven with this anthemically raucous Alt Rock offering. That’s not to say the US based Alt Rock collective’s soundscapes are just an assimilation of tired old sounds. They’ve reinvented the iconic sound with added hype and even tighter instrumental harmony by incorporating the soaring licks of the brass around the guitar-driven sound. Then there’s the lyrics and vocals which register as absolutely flawless.
You can check out Bearing Torches latest single Summer Break which was released in June 2018 on SoundCloud now. If you’re moved by the momentum of tracks such as Summer of 69 by Bryan Adams, this infectiously catchy new hit is the perfect follow up on your playlists.
