Video of the Moment #1715: Bear’s Den

By on Friday, 9th January 2015 at 6:00 pm

Communion Records artists Bear’s Den have just premiered the video for their upcoming single ‘Think of England’, which appears on the band’s stunning debut album ‘Islands’, released back in October.

‘Think of England’ has the bitterly self-reflective air of winter about it, especially in its opening lyrics, “you’re not drinking as much as you used to / I’m the same old, same old / and all those fires that died in our bedroom / I was out, fetching wood.” Sparingly arranged with understated percussion and a poignant guitar riff, the track expands first into a breathtaking chorus and then further into a strikingly dramatic brass interlude.

Directed by Gareth Phillips, the austere black and white video montage features shadowy images of the band members stoically performing the song interlaced with visions of a gracefully restless female dancer, with special visual emphasis on the soaring brass entrance. Lie back and watch, or close your eyes and be transported by the sound.

With the release of ‘Think of England’ on the 2nd of February, Bear’s Den are poised to begin their winter tour of the UK and Ireland. A listing of live dates can be found here.
