Top Tracks: Bears Banquet – Fighting Mist In Light

The debut single from London based singer/songwriter Adam Baring, released under his moniker Bears Banquet, is a real feast for the senses. Shifting between quirky, off-kilter folk and slide guitar driven, wall-of-sound psychedelica, it’s a curious and unique offering. There are nods to everyone from classic Grateful Dead, to viral bluegrass sensation Steve’n’Seagulls, but the end result is a sound entirely his own. The world of Bears Banquet is certainly a bizarre one, but it’s also damn good fun. Released 10th February, it’s not quite clear what this first release will lead to in the future, but I for one am eager to see where this bewildering journey leads.
