Bear's Den

Folk makers Bear’s Den have had a very busy year this year indeed. They’ve just completed a European tour and are about to head off to the US and Canada. In between all of this they’ve been very nice and made an album called ‘Islands’, which is due to be released on 20 Oct. You can pre-order it on iTunes here if you want.

In the meantime, they’ve unveiled a new single called ‘Above The Clouds Of Pompeii’. And before you ask, no, it’s got nothing to do with Bastille. Apparently it was written in the back of a VW Campervan and you can’t get much more folk-y than that. They do, however, list Barry Manilow as one of their main influences on their Facebook page, which is er, not so Folk-y.
