Bear’s Den’s “Auld Wives” is about our past, present and future. The track centers around the people who come in and out of our lives — the ones who are not meant to be there for an extended stay, but impact and shape our stories for the long term. In tandem, the video invites us to grapple with the loss of a loved one on our own, however difficult that may be. “Auld Wives” is a meditation on closure — coming to terms with not having that final conversation, and moving forward despite the hardship. “I call your name” echoes throughout, reminding us that one of the most enduring relationships we have is with ourselves.
