Bear’s Den returned with a surprise live show last night. The new line-up sailed through tracks from the next album before rounding the night off with first LP favourite ‘Agape’. Just before finishing, the band’s Andrew Davie smiled and said, “We’ve been genuinely shitting our pants about this! Thank you so much, this has been an amazing night for us.” Any shitting of pants would have been a waste of decent underwear, as the crowd at the Notting Hill Arts Club smiled, swayed and sang their way through the band’s hour on stage. In January, Joey from BD, decided to leave and do his own thing. A talented musician/multi-instrumentalist like him is hard to replace, but they’ve recruited a few new faces that have them sounding at the top of their game. ‘Red Earth’ & ‘Auld Wives’ already have the markings of huge hits. And both tracks feel like a progression in terms of sound. While ‘Broken Parable’ and ‘Love Can’t Stand Alone’ are lovely little nods back to the band we all fell in love with.
