LISTEN: China Bears - 'Jolene'

China Bears have been busy through this crazy year, playing streaming shows and recording performances for blogs, radio stations and labels alike. I adore the stairwell performance of I'm Not Eating Like I Used To that they sent in for the blog's fifth birthday earlier in the year, which you can catch up on here. A few weeks back, they've just shared their third single of the year, taken from their upcoming second EP Statue Still, due early next year. Jolene is everything I've come to love from the band, a lovely heartfelt (if a little sad) slice of indie - or as the press release so beautifully puts it - "a lithe indie mini-drama". China Bears are the band I'll head towards if I want to feel a little sad but be surrounded by great music. 

Talking on the track, the band explain that it "was written about facing the difficulties of separation and the vulnerable positions we tend to put ourselves in for one another. It's sort of making light of the pain that comes with healing, but at the same time feeling proud you were able to give your all to someone, even though it doesn't work out sometimes."
