Bear Away

Never in the Same Place

Review by Gary Hill

This short EP is all hard rocking and energetic music. This is punk, but has leanings toward emo and punk pop depending on the song. Yet there is a real rawness to it that brings it down to Earth. All in all, this is a fun set of tunes.

This review is available in book (paperback and hardcover) form in Music Street Journal: 2020  Volume 6. More information and purchase links can be found at:

Track by Track Review
Parts and Labour
Feedback brings this into being. It launches out into driving pop punk from there. This is a fast paced and powerful rocker. It earns a definite parental advisory for the lyrics. There are some good hooks. A tastefully raw edge tempers the cut.
Is There Any God Up There?
This is more fierce and rawer. It's a screamer that foregoes the catchier hooks of the opener. That said, there are some mean guitar riffs. The tune is rawer and leans more toward the pure punk side than the pop punk.
Growing Up
Another high energy stomper, this has more emo in the mix. I dig the guitar sound on the tune. This is another powerhouse.
Never Complete

Another that gets a parental advisory, this is not a big change. It's just another screaming hot punk tune. I love the raw edges of it.
