Bearings was formed in 2014 by a group of college friends in a music industry program. They wanted to put what they’d learned to use while finding a creative outlet for the many stories they had to tell. Now, with their first two releases “Higher Ground” and “Home Is…” under their belt, the group are ready to come out swinging.
Bearings’ sound shows clear ties to the titans of punk rock but is aware of its place in time. Listeners can draw clear similarities to classic pop punk acts like Blink 182 and Descendents, but Bearings bring that iconic sound into 2017, but with a modern indie melody and rock dynamic that is all their own.
The follow-up to their first two EPs was the recent release of their single “North Hansen” and accompanying music video. Both were met with praise from fans and press alike, including a feature in Alternative Press’ roundup of the 10 best new songs of the week. With an EP on the way and upcoming tours, Bearings are hitting the ground running in 2017 and show no signs of stopping.
