Bear Bones is an 8 piece ensemble of accordion, brass, bells, banjo, strings, drums and voices, is the realisation of a project started by Ben Harrison. After growing up on a remote Hebridean Scottish Island, Ben moved to Glasgow and started writing songs inspired by his island home and the life he led there.
The band’s first single Oil & Lacquer quietly became a must‐have record amongst Scottish music‐lovers and put them at the fore of Glasgow’s burgeoning folk scene. Their second, eagerly awaited single Diving Bell, released through Eli and Oz on December 5th, is full of the rousing choruses and sincere lyricism that Bear Bones are already becoming known for, and might well be the record to spill the secret of one of Scotland’s most exciting new bands.
