Single Review: Bear Shoe – OUCH! (Wisdom Teeth)

Bear Shoe - OUCH! (Wisdom Teeth) Artwork

Bear Shoe are a four man Alternative/Punk outfit from Guildford made up of Matt Thienpont on Guitar/Vocals, Ivan Vasilyev on Guitar/Vocals, Elkan Lau on Bass and Ben Waites on Drums. You can check out a review I did of another track by Bear Shoe by clicking here. Today, however I will be reviewing their latest track ‘OUCH! (Wisdom Teeth)’ which was released on the 26th July 2019. 

‘OUCH! (Wisdom Teeth)’ hammers forward, a powerful blaring of strings, that merges expertly with a light percussive line. I really enjoyed this track from the off, it has a very classic rock/punk feel to it, like something you’d hear in an only Tony Hawk game, you know before they became absolute trash. Anyway, I’ve reviewed Bear Shoe before so I already had an idea of what to expect but this track blew me away, it was energy filled, bouncy with just a slightly heavy edge and most importantly every individual aspect of it got to shine, for example around the 2:08 mark their is this amazing guitar break down that I absolutely loved. 

So that’s what I thought of Bear Shoe’s single ‘OUCH! (Wisdom Teeth)’ and if you want to check that out then head on over to Spotify. You can also support the band by following them on Facebook and Twitter.
