Eliza and the Bear's Ultimate Playlist

It's worth reiterating that no one in Eliza and the Bear is called Eliza, nor are there any bears around when they play. Unless perhaps if they're touring Canada.

Now that's established, all you need to know is that they're one of the UK's most promising bands, gaining widespread plaudits for their big-hearted, sweeping indie tunes, which are grouped together on their self-titled debut album- available to buy now. Check out lead single Friends here.

We sat down with the guys to discover their Ultimate Playlist; read on to discover their selection and the stories behind them.
