Bearings have released a new song titled ‘Get The Need.’ The new song is written with Kamtin Mohager of The Chain Gang of 1974 and Marshall Gallagher of Teenage Wrist. The song will feature on the release of a deluxe version of their Courtney Ballard (Good Charlotte, Waterparks) produced album, ‘Hello, It’s You,’ out 15 September through Pure Noise Records.
The band previously released a cover version of Harry Style ‘Golden’ featuring Ryan Woods, which you can listen to HERE. “Making these songs was sort of throwing it back to where we started,” says Dougie Cousins. “All of us in a room recording music and having beers. Guitars, bass, drums and a bit of singing. Had to remind people we can still rock.”
Guitarist Ryan Fitz continues: “Recording these songs was a really different process than any way we’ve ever created music for Bearings before. It was probably the most “DIY” recording process we’ve done in our professional career as a band. Everyone came down to where I live in Hamilton, and we self-recorded all songs in 5 days in a really nice (but small) studio I work out of here. This was the first time we had been together, even just as friends in a long time because of how many lockdown and stay at home orders we kept having in Ontario. I think it really shines through that we were having a fun time recording and arranging these songs and ‘Need’ especially shows a more honest and dream rock sound that we’ve never really approached before. It felt really great to just be working on music together again.”
