4 stars Leaning On A Bear was the exciting first glimpse of the band's upcoming album The Circle & The Blue Door and it certainly managed to deliver in that regard!

After releasing their Rocking Horse EP in 2012 and playing a few gigs around the London city area, it was finally time for Purson to get into the studio and deliver their debut album. It didn't take long for the band to release their first teaser in the form of the first single Leaning On A Bear and once again, I was completely mesmerized by this promising young band! The title track is an uptempo rock track featuring a few twists and turns, while managing to once again show me a whole new side to the bands '70s rock sound. The second track, Let Bloom, sounded more in line with the Rocking Horse EP and it could have easily been squeezed in somewhere between Two And Ones and Wool.

This single definitely made me excited for what was yet to come on Purson's full-length release The Circle & The Blue Door by fusing the already familiar sounds from the Rocking Horse EP with some new ideas to the retro rock sound of the '70s.

**** star songs: Leaning On A Bear (3:27) Let Bloom (2:59)
