Hunter & The Bear
EP Launch Wednesday 30 October 2013 O2 Academy, Islington
I am going to throw my hat in the ring here and give you a personal recommendation.
If you like hair tingling on the back of your neck folksy music and simple poetic lyrics, then these guys are for you. And look how cool their bear logo is. Look at it. I am excited just looking at this.
Hunter & The Bear are a two thirds Scottish and 0ne third English trio formed in 2012. Hunter & The Bear are made up of Jimmy (Lead Guitar, Mandolin, Vocals), Will (Rhythm Guitar, Vocals, Kick Drum) and Josh (Bass, Harmonica, Vocals).
Producing real folk music, maybe something to graduate on to if you tire of Mumford and Sons trite brand of rustic worthiness.
This video for Fisherman’s Way certainly caught my attention, as did the excellent range of facial hair on show:
If you still need convincing then why not give Forest On The Hill from their Cubs EP a listen:
I’m looking forward to hearing more, in the meantime you can catch them live at their EP Launch O2 Academy, Islington on Wednesday 30 October 2013.
