Welcome to The Bearing's Bandmix Page.
We're Currently looking for a new drummer & a guitarist as well as synth/sampling/programming if possible. (We are currently bassist and keyboard/pianist).
We like to try to regularly rehearse, weekly, and ideally we like to come into rehearsal up to scratch, having practiced our parts whilst being open minded and creative.
There are some funky time signatures, quirky harmonic shifts, some grooves but also some soundscapes. We’re hoping to keep writing across a range of styles, but develop a unifying sound together as a band.
Being sociable, friendly and up for a beer/outing is something we're looking for also.
If you feel that you fit our desires, please get in touch. Happy searching :)
All The Best,

The Bearing - Patagonia [Big Bang - EP]
The Bearing - Patagonia [Big Bang - EP]When you look to the horizon You begin to understand That somehow everything’s connected The human heart to nature’s lands But if you think about our choices, Hard to find some right in wrong, And seems like nature’s plan was different We’ve forgotten just how we belong Lonely, lonely, lonely people Never talk to each other Though we live next to one another Crazy, crazy, crazy people Try to conquer the planet That we’re just here to inhabit If you question what is possible It’s amazing what you’ll find A turquoise lake on top of the world A reflection of an open mind But now we’re muddying all the waters In the name of growth we build We’re forced to work harder and harder To afford to reach nature we’ve not yet killed When did our egos get so bruised that this wasn’t enough? When did we dare to presume that life shouldn’t be tough? How do we recognise beauty and then not destroy it? How do we recognise beauty and then not destroy it? If you stare up at the summit In the first few rays of dawn Basalt spires and hanging glaciers In only seconds dreams are born
The Bearing - Reason To Go On [Big Bang - EP]
The Bearing - Reason To Go On [Big Bang - EP]Cold November days But not so cold To keep the thoughts of you away So out I go alone I wrap up warm Find fun in the storm And there it is, There it’s always been: The reason to go on Beams hurl through the clouds, Light up the Thames Dazzle the corners of my mind As tourists wave from boats, Jaw set the row man cuts through their wake And here it is, Here it’s been all this time: The reason to go on Oh look at me, Look at where I’m coming from Oh listen up, Don’t know where I’m going to Oh hoped that we, We would find our way together But now I’m left with nothing else to do but Find meaning, Mean something, Sometimes it’s Good to wonder through these crazy streets alone, Good to know I find reasons to go on, all on my own Seems like movie scenes, To watch us folk From where the seagulls duck ‘n dive We all create so much, Market stalls bursting with all that love And this right here, This is how it is: The reason to go on Seems like movie scenes, To watch us folk From where the seagulls duck ‘n dive We all can give so much All of us bursting with all that love
The Bearing - Big Bang [Big Bang - EP]
The Bearing - Big Bang [Big Bang - EP]Sometimes I feel overwhelmed And I gotta lay low Sometimes I feel all the pain I just wanna let go All these stories, it’s not fair The world’s gone mad, we’ve run out of air And I, I’m just so weary Of kindness overthrown And I, I know you hear me But you’ve got problems of your own But don’t you understand, that it’s a Long, long, long fuse… But it’s a Big Bang “Baby what you wanna be, Later when you’re all grown”? “I’d like mamma to play with me, So I wanna be a cell phone.” Now I’m addicted to all this stuff, And who’s to say I can’t get enough? And I, I want for nothing, Except what I can’t buy And I, I know you need me, But right now mamma’s gotta cry ‘Cause don’t I understand, that it’s a Long, long, long fuse… But it’s a Big Bang For unknown reasons something’s snapped tonight, I’ve crossed a line Bent double over these keys That unlock my plea For you, and me, well everybody To be free I’ve got Rilke’s letters here, Teachings of Don Juan. I’ll end with the serenity prayer, A shot of Dylan And all of this goes round inside, The best and worst of human kind And I, I’m just so sorry, I hope things can improve, But I, I’m filled with worry, That time’s already on the move ‘Cause don’t we understand, that it’s a Long, long, long fuse… But it’s a Big Bang
The Bearing - Farewell To Kings [Big Bang - EP]
The Bearing - Farewell To Kings [Big Bang - EP]Down by the water she lay As the gulls and the herons eyed up their prey But prayer was not on the menu that day ‘Cause faith and her had long since parted ways Out to the opening she stared Where Loch Fyne flirted into Atlantic’s bed And floating by smoked the pyres of the dead And still their words are ringing in our heads Oh sticks and stones keep breaking brave peoples’ bones When they speak out of turn Off! Off with your head or banished from this land! Haven’t we come a long, long way since then? Haven’t we come a long, long way since then? Fare-thee-well to Kings Over the valley she peered To the legions of the Lost on the frontier Rumoured to end the prosperity of years Their cries are certain to fall on deaf ears Tracing the ridgeline she ran To the nearest of her elders in command And before long the building of a wall began, With flags and guns to help them understand Surrounded by the angry throngs we push on through But little acts of kindness and we get knocked out The domino effect from all we say and do Yet funny how the good stuff is not what we write home about Most ordinary folk carry on with their lives And do their best to give and receive love and care Yet all we hear tells us that only hatred thrives But then injustice anywhere threatens justice everywhere Wide eyed with terror she froze Disappeared from right under their nose And while the plans for retribution are imposed The voice of dispossession only grows
