Bear's Den

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.

The London-based folk rock trio called Bear's Den stopped by WFUV a few weeks ago, while on tour with Mumford & Sons for the Gentleman of the Road shows. The trio — Communion Records co-founder Kevin Jones, Andrew Davie and Joey Haynes — chatted about their debut EP, Agape, as well as other prospects on the horizon including an upcoming show here in New York, opening for Daughter at Terminal 5 later this month. Bear's Den, who make no secret of their affection for American folk rock of the '60s and '70s,  performed a couple of their new songs live in Studio A.
