Boy & Bear Nominated For Three ARIA Awards Including Best Group, Best Rock Album And Producer Of The Year.After several years abroad, Australia’s Boy & Bear announce their much-anticipated return to North America to support their sophomore effort and Nettwerk debut Harlequin Dream (available now at iTunes).
Known for their remarkable live performance, Boy & Bear made their first appearance on North American shores in 2011 at Lollapalooza, where they impressed the crowd with beautifully crafted songs infused with guitar riffs, mandolins, keys, banjos and lush vocal harmonies.
Lead single “Southern Sun” is a shining example of that dreamy pop panache and vivid storytelling. Coasting along on a lilting acoustic guitar, it builds into an undeniable hook. “It’s a really simple song,” says lead singer Dave Hosking. “I was always fascinated by something like America’s ‘Horse with No Name’. The song is only two chords, but it’s completely captivating. That was in my mind. The longer I do this, the more I appreciate subtlety in music.”Boy & Bear is Dave Hosking (lead singer/guitars), Killian Gavin (vocals/guitars), Tim Hart (drums, vocals, guitars), Jon Hart (vocals/keys/mandolin) and Dave Symes (bass).
