Blue Hours is Bear’s Den fourth studio album. Preceeded by the singles “All That You Are” and “Spiders”, the record was announced on 19 January 2022, the same day the second single dropped. Eventually, “Shadows” and the title track were also released as singles. The album was described by Andrew Davie as in the following statement:
Blue Hours is a kind of imaginary space you get into at night, a place where you process difficult things or where you try to figure everything out.
Davie also stated that the record focuses on mental health and self-reflection, since the duo struggled with the former in the past years. Besides, they have worked with CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably), a mental health charity program.
It probably speaks to our struggles and hopefully many other people’s too. Men are not very good at talking. We’re not really taught how to – men have no idea how to talk about this stuff, certainly to each other.
However, Blue Hours is also about hope. Kevin Jones, the other half of the group, shared a few words on that:
We wanted this to be a celebration of music. I think that informed some of the bolder decision making on this record. At a time when music was so distant, it felt important to make an album that sounded hopeful, celebratory, ambitious and beautiful in spite of the heavy subject matter in some of the songs.
It was almost like we needed to shout louder than before because we felt that there were more barriers between the audience and us. We needed something to transcend that.
With all that being said, Bear’s Den described Blue Hours‘ conceptual imagery as
somewhere between a hotel, a mental health hospital, a bar that stays open later than anywhere else, a paradise, a dream, a nightmare and an endless sea of corridors and staircases leading you to rooms that represent memories – good, bad, happy or difficult.
Formed in 2012, Bear’s Den is a British, folk-inspired alternative rock band from London. The duo have successfully built a dedicated fanbase through their live performances and DIY ethos – early tours were self-funded, and their first EP was self-released with a hand printed bear’s paw stamped on the sleeve.
The debut studio album, Islands, was released on 20 October 2014, from which the song “Above the Clouds of Pompeii” was nominated for an Ivor Novello award for ”Best Song Musically and Lyrically”. A second studio album was released on 22 July 2016, titled Red Earth & Pouring Rain.
Bear’s Den consists of two members, Andrew Davie (lead vocals, guitar) and Kevin Jones (vocals, drums, bass, guitar). Former member Joey Haynes (vocals, banjo, guitar) left the band in February 2016.
