upon the north



Released: 25th Feb 2013


out of stock

euphoric brass sections juxtapose bright piano & layered guitars, soaring to a glorious cacophony of a climax - their impressive brand of folk-pop is likely to appeal to fans of noah & the whale, dry the river, stornoway or mumford & sons.

this is an appropriate introduction to Eliza & the Bear that encapsulates the joyous instrumentation & powerful vocal melodies that propel this band - they are as exciting on record as they are live. Dominated by chants of the refrain "I spent summers awake, hiding in rivers and lakes”, it’s a nostalgia trip back to teenage dreams. It’s clear from the music alone that this is a close-knit group of friends, and there’s something in their obvious ease around each other that allows their performances to be spectacularly tight.
