‘So that you might hear me‘ is the follow-up to Bear’s Den’s, silver-selling debut, Islands, which earned them an Ivor Novello nomination in the UK and a devoted following worldwide, and 2016’s more expansive Red Earth & Pouring Rain, which went Top 10 across Europe. The speed and scale of their success meant that Bear’s Den hadn’t taken a break since forming in 2012 – Red Earth & Pouring Rain was written in weeks squeezed in between tours and main stage festival slots. Last year, finally, they took a step back to focus on their future. For the first time, Andrew & Kev had their own studio where they could leave their instruments plugged in and come and go as they pleased. Musically, there were no self-imposed constraints. Nor was there a time frame.
