You may know Sean Smith from his time with his sister Sarah as Same Difference, the act that reached the final on the fourth season of the British X-Factor but since he's embarked on his solo career, Sean has been growing and evolving as an artist and it's never more evident than on the new Beware the Bear track, "Show Me Love". Sean sounds so much different than he has previously and it's an amazing showcase of his vocals as Beware the Bear create a track that just picks him up and carries him all the way across the finish line. This is one of the most uplifting songs I've heard in a long time and in comparison to the recent trend of the dark, emotives Lana's and Billie's....this track is a bright spot in a very dark night.
It's not so much a plea for affection as much as it is showing that he's open and receptive to what it is you have to offer. He's put himself out there and he's let you know that he's ready and not its your turn to play your part. It's hopeful and it's light and it's everything you need in a solid pop song. It makes you want to be loved and it makes you want to have everything that comes along with it and I don't think there's anyone out there that could deliver a performance better than Sean. He's a brilliant vocalist and I love that we get to travel with him on his exploration of self and I can't wait to see him as he's becoming the most fully realized version of himself because it's a helluva ride.
