Exclusive: Get familiar with We Speak In Colors with their new song “Black Bears”

Posted 3 years ago by Joel Funk

Hypnotic and smooth, We Speak In Colors self-described brand of bummer rock is sure to win you over. An obvious Midwestern emo influence is present, but it’s not what sells the music. It’s the fact that, while you can hear those influences shine through, We Speak In Colors manages to continue to push forward into an indie pop sound that is completely their own. 

We’re so excited to be introducing you guys to this band with a phenomenal new song called “Black Bears” which features Caleb of Sinai Vessel. Here’s how the listening experience is going to play out. You’re going to press play, you’re going to tap your toes, you’re going to fall in love, and you’re going to click play again. You can listen to “Black Bears” and read a little about what Andrew had to say about the song after the cut. 

“Black Bears” was written in 2 different bedrooms in Tennessee and Pennsylvania and finds the subject climbing mountains, wandering the woods, and crossing an ocean in search of something, but then realizes it’s best for everyone to not have it.

It was recorded in Nashville during a February ice storm that shut the town down. It features Caleb Cordes from Sinai Vessel singing on the bridge. Produced by Steve Soboslai at Modern Short Stories Studio. It was a joy giving the song over to Steve and seeing him dig in. He has an insane knack for feel and I love the way he interpreted it.
