Following the recent release of their new EP Christmas, Hopefully, Bear’s Den have unveiled the official video for the collection’s title-track.
Recorded in immersive audio, similar to surround sound, the new visuals for ‘Christmas, Hopefully’ are intended to create a more warming and intimate experience throughout. As the track itself focuses on the countless stories of those that will be spending Christmas without their loved ones this year, the single-shot video delivers an inviting aesthetic that lets many know that even though we are apart, we will still be thinking of them this festive season.
In a statement about the new video, the band said: “It’s been a strange old year for all of us and as a band it’s been no different. Our musical identity was built from touring and playing shows and without it, life just hasn’t been the same. We’ve been racking our brains trying to figure out interesting ways of performing that can make us all feel like we’re in the same room together and it’s proven really tricky. However… our good friends Ricky & Anthony suggested working together on an immersive audio performance and we jumped at the chance. So here’s a video performance of our new Christmas song ‘Christmas, Hopefully’ performed in and around The Salisbury Tavern (one of our locals) during the most recent lockdown. Best experienced with headphones to make it feel like you’re in the room with us.”
