New Music | Bear Medicine – Infestation
by Kyle Mitchell, the editor and founder of Music Savage, lover of music, hater of remixes.
The strength of actual bear medicine is introspective thinking, and finding solutions to problems through that search within. That introspection shapes the lyrics on this first single “Infestation” from Lexington Kentucky’s, Bear Medicine, a single on an upcoming split single with tour partner Ancient Warfare. As self-appointed healers and shamans, this song is the salve that soothes the soul’s problems with the gentle waves of acoustics and soothing falsetto vocals that instantly charm the ear, the lyrics seem to speak the opposite, they’ve got a dark pensive tenor, that pulls you into their mind, all of this wrapped inside a beautifully simple and wonderful folk environment.
You can grab the Ancient Warfare / Bear Medicine split single now on iTunes. Look for “Infestation,” to also appear on, their self-titled debut out in October.
