Named as one of our ‘Ones to Watch In 2018’, Gothenberg-based Be The Bear (aka. Christina Wehage) really managed to make an impression on us when she released her striking debut single ‘Erupt’ last year, putting forth an enticingly dramatic style, mixing sweeping orchestral arrangements with subtle electronic touches. Now, she has returned to share a new song with the world and her latest offering ‘I Don’t Want To’ is a sprightly slice of buoyant electro-pop that sees her making a foray into more light-hearted territory.
If you’ve been looking for a way to bottle up summer before autumn really takes hold, Be The Bear has you covered! A song about “not letting anyone get you down or tell you what you can’t do”, ‘I Don’t Want To’ is filled with infectious, uplifting energy and a self-empowering mood throughout. The track bristles with playful exuberance, culminating in a bouncy chorus that lets loose with a scintillating display of catchy pop hooks, sun-glazed guitar and iridescent synths as she sings: “Bring me the sun or my heart will stop glowing, you say I should wait for it, but I don’t want to’.
‘I Don’t Want To’ is out now via Be The Bear’s own label Loud Attic Recordings – it’ll bring you right back to the carefree joy of summer, so make sure to check it out below!
