Bear Call

Bear Call's "Harsh"

Bear Call’s latest single, “Harsh” was just released as an end of summer jam and the title is oh-so deceiving. The smooth chill of “Harsh” is a jazzy mellow jam with warm strums and some nice key action with lyrics that are secretly funny. Oh la la, take a dive. Bear Call will be back playing in San Francisco in December playing with Goon at The Knockout. ’Til then, jam on. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor

Stream our favorite tracks from each of these artists in the playlist below. - Lilly Milman
