Having started out little over a year ago after meeting in university Stuart and Lauren of Bella and the Bear have got a synchronicity that takes some musicians years to build. Their music can be hard to pin down; elements of folk, pop, hip-hop and spoken word all play a part. Joining me in the studio we picked apart their music, influences, and the bold vision of Bella and the Bear, as well as enjoying three excellent live tracks.
Below are videos for the tracks Little Boat, Sleeping Patterns, and Magaluf which were recorded at Pulse 98.4 as part of the band's Scottish Fiction Session. To hear the full show, including interview, check out the Scottish Fiction Podcast for 10th September 2015.
