Bear’s Den have a confession to make. The title of their extraordinary third album ‘So that you might hear me’ was borrowed from the late Chilean poet Pablo Neruda. Or rather, borrowed and neatly tweaked.
“So That You Will Hear Me” was the poem that haunted Andrew Davie, the British duo’s lyricist and lead singer, as songs for the album were taking shape. Only in retrospect did he realise why.
“To me, it’s about trying to communicate with someone and feeling like you can’t reach them anymore” says Andrew. “That deeply resonated with me. Unwittingly, it became a theme of the album.”
