The other day Raf Rundell and Joe Goddard, aka The 2 Bears, premiered their new track “Bear Hug” from their forthcoming same-titled EP, out next week on Southern Fried Records. It’s a really fun track, a little bit house, infused with lots of love. Grab a radio rip below to tide yourself over till the EP comes out. If you haven’t gotten their first two EPs you’re definitely missing out.
