Premiere: Bear Call – “Time Sensitive”


Seamlessly casting a hypnotic gaze, “Time Sensitive” is a track out today from San Francisco-based act Bear Call. A collaboration between multi-instrumentalist/producer Aaron Mortemore and singer/guitarist Skyler Warren, the project shows well throughout this psych-friendly gem. Fuzzy guitar emerges past the one-minute mark delightfully, following an enjoyably dazed vocal presence. Guitar movements approaching the three-minute mark exude an enthralling, amped-up fervor in comparison to the initial subdued nature. Bear Call had a successful 2019, with a second full-length album and 24-date U.S. tour, and with “Time Sensitive” they continue that momentum.

“Time Sensitive” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of August 2020’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Indie Rock.
