London, United Kingdom
Bear's Den are Andrew Davie (guitar, vocals), Joey Haynes (guitar), and Kev Jones (drums, bass). Since forming in 2012, the London based trio have built a fervent fanbase through their live shows and a dedicated DIY aesthetic that originally saw them self-fund tours and sell hand printed CDs direct to fans at gigs. In two short years, Andrew, Joey and Kev quietly went from pub shows to a jaw dropping headline gig at the Brixton Electric in front of 1500 people. Their appearance at Mumford & Sons' Summer Stampede saw them play in front of a 60,000 strong, sold out crowd in London's newly landscaped Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
Thoughts on Songs with Bear's Den
If I'm not mistaken, this song is about the songwriter's father. It isn't the easiest case to manage to contain within some lines all those emotions, experiences and legacy that the symbol of father might be for someone, but hey, that's capable musicians for you!
This song is a memorial of regret for a lost love, throughout it the experiences with the loved one are being recited, in a way that the psychological portrait of the lost lover is being painted. A Folk tune and those lyrics, are a guarantee to blow a particle of melancholy into your night.
