With the release of their new EP, Without/Within, it feels like a nice time to show London based trio Bear’s Den a little love. It was by chance that I happened upon the EP, which is released today, and it has quickly become one of my favourite EPs of 2013.
The video for Sahara is a melancholy affair but, as often happens, it’s quite beautiful too with it’s arty projection visuals and sombre love inspired lyrics. Gentle one moment and souring the next, the harmonies are heaven to listen to – giving just a taste of what the band are capable of.
Speaking to anyone who’s loved and lost, the EP features six exceptional tracks that will have you wishing for a whole album of them. A half-dozen songs from Bear’s Den simply isn’t enough.
Without/Within is out today via Dew Process.
