Bear's Den have shared the powerful new video for 'Laurel Wreath'.
The band's success has allowed them to travel widely, and this has in turn influenced the way they create.
“No one listens to music in boxes anymore, so why make it like that? Our songs incorporate all sorts of sounds, but not in a pre-ordained way,” say the band. “We just try to go where each song suggests.”
New album ‘So That You Might Hear Me’ lands on April 26th, with Bear's Den now sharing the bold video for new song 'Laurel Wreath'.
Brazilian film makers Jungle took the video team to Berlin, shooting in the Marzahn-hellensdorf neighbourhood.
A place where traditional working class communities are evolving thanks to an influx of immigrants, it has also become a flash point for far right activism.
The new clip discusses how that ideology can blind and hurt those around it, while also demonstrating the common humanity that exists in the neighbourhood community.
Jungle say: "When we were sent the brief, the last scene immediately came to our minds: Layers and layers of people stashed above each other separated by 50cm walls. People living their lives in the private cubicles they call home, willingly unaware of each other. Paying a price for their individuality. A dreamlike reality where people embodied their isolation through blindfolds.”
