Forget guitars and keyboards – it’s all about makeshift instruments for Bear’s Den.

Folk rock duo Andrew Davie and Kevin Jones have released the second half of their new documentary to give fans an insight into the recording process of their forthcoming album, “Red Earth & Pouring Rain”.

Shot at Rockfield Studios in rural Wales, the four minute video opens with Davie tapping ominously on a large sheet of metal in a bid to get some new instrumental inspiration.

After voicing their satisfaction with the “cool” sound, the band go on to incorporate the makeshift instrument into new track, Roses On A Breeze.
The band are later seen discussing the “standard verse beat” before recording their harmonies on Gabriel and breaking into laughter while working on Napoleon.
