10 Songs Bear’s Den Listen to On The Road

Bear’s Den is a band that knows the road well. Even before releasing their debut album Islands last year, the band made quite the cult following with their relentless touring. Combining traditional folk elements (read: awesome banjo and stunning lyrics) with the atmospherics of electric guitar and synths, the band no surprise takes their influences from a wide array of artists. We asked the band to make a playlist of their favorite songs to listen to while on tour, and we were not disappointed with the result. It’s a perfect summer playlist, Taylor Swift and all. Those of you attending Lollapalooza this year can see them play, trust us you won’t want to miss it.
