Ontario, Canada – Bearings have released another new song Dreams, from their upcoming new album ‘Hello, It’s You’, out 20th November via Pure Noise Records. It was produced by Courtney Ballard (Good Charlotte, Waterparks). Speaking on the new track frontman Dougie Cousins says “I’m always exploring new sounds and messing with new ideas.It’s one of those songs that comes about pretty naturally and sort of sits in its space without needing to think about it too much.”

As a whole, ‘Hello, It’s You’ uses its lyrical poignancy to elevate universal emotions all too jumbled in the current climate. It’s hard enough to be human, but add in the creeping existential dead de jour, and it’s downright confounding at times. But by reassuring fans to embrace the conflict and messiness of life, Hello, It’s You serves as a reminder of our own humanity, reaching deep into those emotions and stirring something important and long-lasting.
The album follows 2018’s ‘Blue In The Dark’ (hailed by Alternative Press as one of the year’s best) and finds Bearings both deepening and widening their sonic palette: There’s a sharpened take on the classic pop-punk vibe the Ontario, Canada-based quintet – Cousins, guitarists Ryan Culligan and Ryan Fitz, bassist Collin Hanes, and drummer Mike McKerracher – have traded in since forming in 2014, the same mix of ebullient energy and undeniable melodies that have earned them respect and tour invitations from both new-school heavyweights like State Champs and legends like Less Than Jake.
While the world outside is certainly anything but sensical these days, Cousins and his bandmates have worked to mine their mixed emotions on their sophomore full-length.
