Sometimes a song is just good and to explain it would be frivolous. “Braces” is one of those songs.
by the middle of the 1980’s
we were alive and rockin’ the braces
With a sound very similar to another new band, Two Door Cinema Club (MGMT”s in there, too), Ten Bears create some great danceable guitar pop. In fact, I’d even say that “Braces” trumps everything I’ve heard from Two Door Cinema Club. It’s catchy and fun with no sense of pretension, ego, or anything else. It’s just fun and the video’s great evidence for the fact that they know it.
The single “Braces,” from East City Records, is the first release from Ten Bears and I’m looking forward to more.
