Insomniac Bears - Passing Trains - 2019


Featuring members of Team Me, the band’s ambitious arrangements combine ferocious guitars and gleaming melodies that pierce through psychedelic backdrops.

As the band explains, the new single is “about learning how to find your place and carve out a space of security in a world that offers only perpetual instability. The lyrics map out the negative flipside of achieving independence.”

The resulting track is uplifting indie pop that’s the soundtrack to having a little cry, drying your eyes and picking yourself up again. Clash Magazine have said “the track retains a certain mystery, with its dappled melodies moving between opaque pop and lush psychedelia. Lyrically the song muses on loneliness, but does so in a wonderfully beautiful way.”
