written by Dusty Henry

There’s nothing like a move back home to trigger waves of nostalgia. That’s what Leslie Bear, the songwriter behind Long Beard, discovered after a career change brought her back to her former New Jersey stomping grounds. With her friends moved on from her hometown, she found herself feeling like she was standing still and more reflective on her past than ever. This couldn’t help but be translated into her music.

Four years after her debut Sleepwalker, Bear is set to return with the pensive Means to Me on Sept. 13. The album’s title track exudes the contemplative nature of the record, with sweeping vocals and hazy, reversed guitars. The song plays like a memory just out of reach, drifting in and out of view as you struggle to hold on to an anecdote or any piece to keep you tied to the past.
