Listen to Hunter And The Bear’s Electric new single

Hunter And The Bear have released a stream of their brand new single Electric.

The launch of the track comes after the band recently played Glasgow’s TRNSMT and arrives as they prepare for further UK festival appearances and their October UK tour.

Frontman Will Irvine says: “We challenged ourselves to raise the game this year, we have been brutal with ourselves and tried to approach things in a new way. 

“We’ve really enjoyed experimenting with our writing and having a bit of time and space to work on some different kind of songs.”

As for the upcoming October tour, Irvine says: “We’re doing places like Gorilla in Manchester and Scala in London which are our biggest headline show to date which is totally bonkers for us!”
