Seattle indie-prog five-piece Minus The Bear are drop their latest single, ‘Listing’, this week. The track, the second single taken from their fifth studio album – Infinity Overhead, is a classic guitar-pop piece. Starting with guitar and vocals which build to a soaring chorus. The poignancy of the lyrics (‘I was reliving everything you said, then it caved in’) combined with the buoyancy of the guitar and piano tracks, make ‘Listing’ an, overall, uplifting slice of indie pop-rock.
The band have also unveiled a brilliant animated video, directed by Jesse LeDoux and produced by animation house Six Point Harness, to accompany the track
‘Listing’ is out April 15 via Big Scary Monster Records, to coincide with the beginning of Minus The Bear’s biggest headline UK tour since 2005.
