“It’s You” is the Perfect Mood Music from Susan Bear

A mad nostalgia trip

“It’s You” is the brand-new track by lo-fi queer pop producer Susan Bear (FKA Good Dog), a much respected and sought-after stalwart of the Scottish music scene and a lynchpin of Lost Map Records. The standalone single marks a new direction for Susan after two well-received albums, by leaning further into her electronic side.

Still melancholic, tape-y vibes, but this time upping the energy, taking influence from club and dance music. “‘It’s You’ is about going on a mad nostalgia trip,” says Susan Bear, “and your brain tricking yourself into thinking the past is always better than the present.” It comes with a video visualizer by Glasgow 3D artist/designer and DJ VAJ.Power, and is backed with an exclusive remix by award-winning avant-garde musician Lara Jones.

Whether as bassist, keyboardist, guitarist, producer, songwriter, sound-designer, or something in between, Susan Bear has variously worked with Lost Map artists including Tuff Love, Pictish Trail and Martha Ffion, as well as The Pastels, Tracyanne & Danny, Malcolm Middleton, Poster Paints, Karine Polwart, Amandah Wilkinson (Bossy Love) and on a variety of theatre projects. Her debut solo album Creature was released in 2020 and featured the Spotify and Apple Music playlisted song “Floating” (“Gentle, dreamy mood music” – The Scotsman). It was followed in 2022 by the album Alter, which received support from BBC 6 Music’s Radcliffe & Maconie and Amy Lamé and BBC Radio Scotland’s Vic Galloway and Roddy Hart. More new music from Susan Bear will follow in 2024.
