The existence of internet somehow opens the door to having many different genres trend instead of one at a time and for Bear Scouts vocalist and founder Aliff Azhar, he chose the synthy and dreamy sounds of the 80s.
Malaysian 80s pop band Bear Scouts debuts their first ever single since its formation last week, during the aftermath of GE14. ‘The Pills (I Know)’ is on the catchier side of the local indie spectrum, that also brought another healthy playing field in the scene.
Bear Scouts isn’t the first to dabble with 80s pop in recent times: Midnight Fusic’s ‘Lovesick’ stole people’s attention while Bunkface’s unique partnership with Datuk Jeffrydin and Caprice made waves as well last week. Bear Scouts, however, presented a fresh version of the genre, with contemporary elements that compliments the sound well.
