Bear's Den - FUV Live from Electric Lady Studios - 2014

by Kara Manning

Over the course of two fine EPs, Agape and Within/Without and, at long last, a debut album, Islands, Bear’s Den has established itself as a folk rock force of nature, crafting emotionally complex, dynamically arranged songs that soar, swoon and sob. The hard-working London trio— singer/guitarist Andrew Davie, vocalist/banjo player Joey Haynes and drummer (and Communion Records co-founder) Kevin Jones—has toured with Laura Marling, Daughter, the Vaccines and Mumford and Sons, exploring the richly textured nuances of their sound.
