Bear’s Den “All That You Are” – The best of both worlds

Emerging from  a near year long hibernation, Bear’s Den return with new recording ‘All That You Are’, which is not exactly a new song as Andrew Davie explains “‘All That You Are’ is a song that was born on Bear’s Den’s first ever tour – The Austin To Boston tour way back in 2012. It’s been a soundcheck jam for so long and feels like an intrinsic part of what Bear’s Den stands for as a band even if it’s been unreleased for so long.”  Speaking of the song Davie added that “it’s a song fundamentally about hoping for happiness for someone else even if you can’t be the one that makes them happy. It’s also about not being ashamed about looking for that same happiness for yourself.”

Albeit there’s a vein of melancholic regret running through the song, there is an underlying warmth that plays to that theme of wishing the best for another at parting, and wishing it for yourself, as if to say “Hey, this is sad but why shouldn’t we both be happy in the end?

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
