Single: The Academic - Bear Claws

The Academic Bear Claws


The Academic - Bear Claws

Info: Westmeath indie rockers The Academic have announced the release of 'Bear Claws', a vibrant, anthemic piece of alt-rock mastery. The track, which casts a nostalgic glance over its now more adult shoulder, was inspired by those early youthful days when the band, still teenagers themselves, were trying to navigate their way through the minefield that is 'youth socialising'.

Following their independently released Loose Friends EP in 2015 and last year’s equally successful single 'Mixtape 2003', the band scored opening spots with Noel Gallagher, Kodaline and Twenty One Pilots, in addition to supporting The Strokes at Hyde Park and recently completed a number of sold-out UK, European and Irish headline shows. 

Having already earned considerable critical praise from the online community as well as both The New York Times and The Irish Times, the band have also enjoyed considerable support at radio in Ireland and across the UK and Europe. With BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac picking the band as one of her ‘New Names’ for 2017 while Phil Taggart has earmarked the quartet as one of Ireland’s biggest emerging acts, drawing welcome comparisons to Two Door Cinema Club amongst others.

Alternative pop-rock four-piece The Academic released their latest single 'Bear Claws' just last week. Trundling guitar-riffs roll wistfully underneath the upbeat percussion and bass-lines of the track, with lead singer Craig Fitzgerald's vocal giving the song their trademark call-to-action energy, as well as carefully guiding the track's mood across verse and chorus. The Mullingar act continue to make music with strong pop elements with great ease, but also tracks that suit their high energy live shows and have helped them garner a large following and popular online reception from further afield.
