Teddybears asks you “What’s your problem?”


Get behind Teddybears on a mission to change the world by asking ourselves one crucial question “What’s your problem?”

The new track by multi Grammy Award winning Teddybears, called What’s Your Problem?, is not a just a single. It is a whole pro-equality barrier- bending movement which even comes with its own instruction manual:

1. Ask yourself now: What’s your problem with someone of different gender? What’s your problem with someone of different skin colour? What’s your problem with someone of different religion? What’s your problem with someone different? What’s your problem?

2. Ask yourself again: No really, what is your problem?

3. Press play.

I instantly fell for this whole idea, especially that Teddybears are not only one of the biggest Swedish bands, but also because they stand so clearly against any discrimination which is still on the fore-front of our world’s structure.

They’re also re-creating and bringing back a WHOLE new and still unfamiliar genre of electro/indie/rave (yes, in 2015 they’re actually doing something different), a freshly watered music branch where others can follow, grow, expand and evolve…

It’s very interesting what they’re doing and how they’re trying to push boundaries sonically by really experimenting outside the box in literally every single way possible. Don’t believe me? Please have a listen

By coming out with the most unusual sounding single with the most unusual guest feature, the Swedish group want everyone to be able to truly look beyond skin colour, hear beyond genre and focus on what matters most: the core of their message! Also by re-creating and bringing back the whole unexplored genre of electro/indie/rave and making it new again, the group has opened a whole new sonic dimension of uncharted creative possibilities, a new room in music where others can follow, expand and evolve…

Baby Trish, who features on What’s Your Problem?, is a twelve year old girl from Jamaica. Teddybears met her when she was only nine, while working in a studio in Kingston with her godfather Beenie Man. Having built quite the reputation as a performer in and around the capital, Baby Trish joined the band to record their single.

Instantly grabbing the attention of the listener, Baby Trish means every word she says, whilst the tension and release in the arrangement pulses throughout with an attitude-filled energy.

Teddybears yet again push music to its limits. Ground-breaking, daring and filled with memorable hooks, What’s Your Problem?

In order to change the world we have got to start somewhere… Instead of going with a potential given hit maker (and we know they’re capable of that), Teddybears are on a mission to help the world see again that we can change the world through music if enough of us get behind it!

What’s Your Problem? is out NOW, via Polydor Records. Are you in?
