REVIEW: Scruffy Bear - 'Face The Rain' EP


North Yorkshire Fuzz Rock quartet Scruffy Bear boasts a strong, diverse, and exciting sound, which their new EP ‘Face The Rain’ asserts.

The opening bluesy rock ‘Stories Of Strange Women’ is uplifting and empowering. Vocalist Georgy Eaton delivers commanding and powerful, loud vocals about listening to your spirit and not driving yourself mad. A great gripping, groovy and melodic track to reel you in.

‘Magic At Our Fingertips’ is more mellow and laid back but hits hard with heavy riffs and a thunderous chorus. Georgy’s vocal style and delivery are varied, and the whole track keeps you on your toes. This song about climate change also features a very slick and soulful instrumental section and an impressive fuzzy solo.

The striking ‘Blackmoss’ is an immediate high impact track with great bass, swagger and style brimming throughout, and Georgy gives it all as expected on vocals. This is a tremendous free-spirited, energetic rock track.

The final song, ‘Solace’ has a 70s blues-rock vibe and is the softest offering but still a belter in parts with booming vocals and substantial riffs and is highly passionate and memorable.

Like its title, ‘Face The Rain’ will surprise you, pelt down on you and soothe you in equal measure. The EP takes you on a refreshing, inspiring and rousing journey worth experiencing.
