“Elysium” by Bear’s Den – A Song Review

      The London band Bear’s Den dropped another quality track. This one is named “Elysium.” The song progresses along quietly, until the horn asserts its position at the 1:33 mark. Typical of music from Bear’s Den, the cooperative vocals are the best feature.

     We received an email invitation to consider “Elysium.”  Among the information in the invitation was:
     “Elysium” is an elegiac paean to the redemptive power of friendship.
     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. In the US, the band played support tours with Mumford and Sons and Daughter and festival shows on the Gentlemen Of The Road Stopover Tour in both the US and Canada.
      Following on from their two acclaimed EPs on Communion Records, Bear’s Den are currently working on their debut album in a North London studio. It is due for release in the autumn.
