That's My Jam #36 - Bear Arms - Courage
Courage, the latest track from Bear Arms, is one fucker of a wake up call on a Monday morning. The track is the opener on their forthcoming debut album Strength and Conviction, out 20th October via Struggletown Records, and the first peek at what the Glasgow foursome have been up to.
Weaving together post-hardcore and math rock, Courage takes delight in the loud/quiet dyad, whilst overlaying screaming vocals atop a catchy melodic chorus. The track's explosive drumming brings the raw appeal and energy of the band's live performance into the fray, creating an appetite whetting first taste of what the album has to offer.
