Does the torture ever stop? After releasing the incredibly gorgeous Trees Like You in early 2013, The Bear and the Sea has left me clamoring for more, only to tease me with sporadic singles and remixes. A few months ago he cited the need for “quiet time” as the reason for the delay of Caves, which I can sympathize with. However, it looks like fans may be getting a treat soon as The Bear and the Sea is expected to release a new “three track single/EP thingy” next week on his Bandcamp page. The first offering, “Hollow Masters,” is grand and awe-inspiring; demanding your attention as it bounces every which way. There is still no word on what this means for Caves, but this unexpected release will hopefully make the wait a little easier.
