Bear's Den
So that you might hear me

Look, I don’t make the rules. I can’t do anything about this. It’s beyond my control - the Folkpocalypse, that is. Mumford & Sons, Frank Turner, Johnny Flynn - out of my hands. Sorry. When I tell you that So that you might hear me, the third LP from the plum-throated men known collectively as Bear’s Den, will be one of the biggest records of 2019 - well, let’s just say I’m more of an observer at this particular feast. Why is the first word of So that you might hear me capitalised but not the others? Why, if we’re then to conclude that the title is a sentence, is there no full stop at the end of it? Why is it like this now?

Red Earth & Pouring Rain

Bear’s Den’s latest album Red Earth & Pouring Rain was recorded in Wales, and yet the Drive-like sleeve art and the sleek sheen of the music had me convinced that this was an L.A. affair. These are big heart-pumping ballads, still in-keeping with the group’s alternative folk background but with a big load of synthesisers too. Released by Communion.

Agape

Banjo - check. Vocal harmonies - check. Beards - check. Bear’s Den’s got it all, and chuck it together to make the ultimate folk-pop rock. Agape is their latest 10”, featuring their newest single as well as a cover of Sam Smith’s Stay With Me. Get this vinyl treat, put on your woollen cap, and you're set!

Islands

Authentic folkies Bear's Den continue their acoustic-fuelled ascension to heaven, one sparse and delicate record at a time. The trio makes an ornate but simple sound through guitars, more guitars and some soft percussion. Their newest work and their debut record, 'Islands' is coming out through Communion Records 

Bear's Den
Above The Clouds Of Pompeii

Bear's Den make that kind of soft, plaintive folk rock that always floats, never reaching a dead end or hitting a flat surface. 'Above The Clouds of Pompeii' is the work of three dudes with guitars and a few percussive brushes -- plus the occasional trumpeting, because what is folk rock without horns? -- making chilled, emotive songs that are sweetly acoustic and bring to mind Ben Howard and Mumford & Sons. Ride to heaven on a banjo.
