Bear’s Den – Think of England
We’ve been high on Bear’s Den since they so graciously came onto the scene last year via their excellent Agape EP. And after another spectacular Without/Within EP released earlier on this year, this London-based trio wasted no time putting out what has become a highly anticipated debut record. Based on their already-impressive catalog, there weren’t many concerns on whether or not this record would live up to the hype, but to save you any suspense, it turned out absolutely as good as we had hoped. See for yourself on gorgeously uplifting tracks like “Think of England”, where the grand, trumpet-fueled finale is more than enough to get even the most casual listeners a bit emotional.
