Eyewear's Top Songs of 2012: #12 'Sinful Nature' by Bear In Heaven

As mentioned earlier, this was the year when half the bands in the world tried to sound like Tears for Fears, or some offshoot.  Bear In Heaven were one of them, creating a clutch of New Wave pop gems of great cut and quality.  Perhaps the most resonant, and certainly the most reverberant, is the echo-laden, galloping 'Sinful Nature' which could almost be Depeche Mode meets Yeasayer.  Haunting, romantic, lyrically frank at times, this song made me want to be skinny, twenty, and in a disco falling in love listening to it.  Listening to it, I was.  The ending is especially sick slash cool.
