Discovery: Onedaybear

Onedaybear is an alternative rock artist from the other side of the Pennines in Manchester. His moody new track is called Swim.

By Graeme Smith

Channelling post-punk energy with overtones of psych, Swim is a relentless track that deploys driving percussion, distorted guitar and soft, spoken-word vocals to great effect. The poetic lyrics are inspired by the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice but aren’t stuffy. In fact, they sit nicely in the psyche of 2021.

Onedaybear has been making and releasing music for the past decade, mostly as part of bands. Swim is his first step on what I think is a promising solo career. You can check it out below.
