TEDDYBEARS FT. GORILLA ZOE – “THE BEST YOU EVER HAD” | #Teddybears
ROCK ON (2016)
Get ready for the upcoming new track by the Grammy-award winning Scandi Teddybears featuring Gorilla Zoe (Boyz n da Hood, Joel Ortiz, Lupe Fiasco).
After Teddys’ eventful 2015 which consisted of: writing hits such as “Diamonds” by Giorgio Moroder and Charli XCX, working on new tracks with Sia, John Newman, Ellie Goulding, Max Martin and Petite Meller as well as having tracks featured on FIFA, Peugeot and being the worldwide official Marshall Hedphones soundtrack, Teddybears have not forgotten about their “anti-pop though we make pop” vibe.
Their “Although we’ve proven that we can have number ones, we’re choosing to go against popular trends” attitude in their native Sweden has made them one of the biggest bands in Scandinavia.
Mid-90s rock-electronica seems to have remained in the deepest valley of cultural relevance to finding new ways of making music, intertwining loops, riffs, repetitions and all that electronic rock is known for today. The multi- Grammy award winning Teddybears have decided to reopen the genre’s door in the shape of their upcoming new single The Best You Ever Had.
Having worked with a number of pop superstars such as Max Martin, Cee-Lo Green, Sia, Iggy Pop, Petite Meller and Ellie Goulding, Teddybears have now teamed up with the ex- Boyz N Da Hood US rapper Gorilla Zoe to create a genuine retro tribute (but with a contemporary hip hop twist) to the mid-90s rock-tronica and all its forefathers.
The Best You Ever Had is a sonically accurate combination between Chemical Brothers Go, Daft Punk Robot Rock and Fatboy Slim Push The Tempo showing that Teddybears have packaged yet another song into a unique piece of music. By sturdily building the foundations of their writing and producing careers, they’ve kept the freedom to do, write and produce what they want within the band, no matter how un-pop, un-obvious or unusual it may be…
The band have already turned heads with their unusual sonic selections, and have been airplayed multiple times on BBC Radio 6 Music (including Steve Lamacq and Iggy Pop) as well as supported by Consequence Of Sound, The Line Of Best Fit, SPIN, Noisey and Indie Shuffle to name a few. Pitchfork even say their sound “is like an aural Jackson Pollock painting” which clearly illustrates the musically unpredictable attitude of the Teddybears.
The Best You Ever Had is taken from the band’s upcoming new LP Rock On, and the single will be out for sale and download everywhere 8th January 2016 on Polydor Sweden.
