London trio, Bear’s Den, release their new single, Elysium, on 21st July. Elysium bridges the gap between the band’s previous material and their new music from their forthcoming début album.
Elysium is an achingly earnest tale of the power of friendship. The track is fragrant with sounds of Americana: horns, banjo, rich vocal harmonies and the gentle grandeur of an acoustic guitar, making for an all-encompassing burst of melodious folk melodies, passionate choruses and what more than a message to live by “guard your hope with your life”. Bear’s Den make it seem so effortless to produce a song that clearly has all the makings to be a summer anthem, bathe in the sunshine of Bear’s Den’s glorious folk credence, cherish these moments.
