Spirit of the Bear: New Single ​Opaque

Columbus, Ohio - Rising Ohio indie act Spirit of the Bear are continuing their newest album with the release of new single “Opaque”. The colorful, driving synth-rock song deals with themes of transition and constructive change over an old school hip-hop-inspired beat and vibrant vocal harmonies.

The song’s accompanying music video is the band’s most ambitious to date, starting with a mockumentary intro depicting the band’s bitter breakup before the members embark on individual self-discovery journeys including a drug-fueled trip, a multi-million dollar art deal, and an 8-bit battle.


Spirit of the Bear’s previous single “Summer Snow”, described by Atwood Magazine as “lush, tender, insatiable, and pulsing,” served as their most successful release to date, landing them on the Spotify “Fresh Finds: Indie” editorial playlist and cementing their reputation as one of Ohio’s most exciting rising bands.
