Bear's Den / Share New Single 'Laurel Wreath'
Following the announcement of their third studio album ‘So that you might hear me’ set for release on April 26th, today British duo Bear’s Den release new lead single ‘Laurel Wreath’. A majestic track built on piano with electric guitars and synths that shimmer like strings, ‘Laurel Wreath’ showcases the depth of Bear’s Den's collaborative intuition. Listen to the new track via YouTube HERE.
“We’re hugely excited to be releasing ‘Laurel Wreath’ into the world today. It’s a song about vulnerability and courage and the need for connection that runs through the whole album” says Andrew Davie of the band.
Much like its predecessors ‘Fuel On The Fire’ and ‘Blankets of Sorrow’, ‘Laurel Wreath’ reminds the listener how organic, intimate and deeply moving this record is set out to be. ‘So that you might hear me‘ is the follow-up to 'Red Earth and Pouring Rain' and silver-selling debut ‘Islands', which earned them an Ivor Novello nomination in the UK and a devoted following worldwide. Their fans have embraced them for their ability to create music that has evolved from the processes the pair have had to adapt to.
"No one listens to music in boxes anymore, so why make it like that? Our songs incorporate all sorts of sounds, but not in a pre-ordained way,” says Andrew. “We just try to go where each song suggests.”
The band have also launched podcast series in the run-up to the release of their new album, written and hosted by Sugar High’s Danny Carissimi. Listen HERE.
