A few weeks back, UK folk trio Bear's Den shared a surprisingly gripping cover of Drake's "Hold On, We're Going Home", and luckily, they've additionally been hammering away at a few fresh originals to be compiled into their new Without/Within EP. After being introduced to their infectious charm on a beautiful summer afternoon when they explored the gentle sincerity of their former EP, Agape in our backyard, it's great to see Bear's Den catching on in the U.S. as one of Communion Records' finest acts.
Earlier today a stream of Without/Within premiered on Rolling Stone, for which frontman Andrew Davies commented, "The songs were in many ways our most personal yet and also our most ambitious sonically." Davies went on to discuss his own transition into working with an electric guitar, and luckily, after listening to the EP below, you'll find that this progression didn't frighten the folk one bit.
Without/Within is due out March 3rd, and you can catch them on their current tour now (DATES).
