Boy and Bear - Southern Sun

Boy and Bear - Southern Sun
Following on from the multi award winning album Moonfire, a hit record that took the Sydney based Boy & Bear and their music to most corners of the planet. The band have released the first single ‘Southern Sun’ today, the first taste and the perfect introduction to Boy & Bear’s second album ‘Harlequin Dream’. ‘Southern Sun’ is ample evidence of the band’s recent time spent tuning in to — among others — Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon and the musical firm of Fleetwood Mac.

‘There’s something really magical in their songs,’ says the band’s singer / songwriter Dave Hosking. ‘Hopefully something rubbed off.’

Chipping away at the new album ‘Harlequin Dream’ since October 2012, the tracks were recorded at Sydney’s fabled Alberts studio and were co-produced by Boy & Bear and Wayne Connolly (who’s won ARIAs for his work with Josh Pyke and Youth Group, etc). The album was then mixed by Phil Ek in Seattle, who’s made magic with Band of Horses and Fleet Foxes.

About this track...

‘Southern Sun’ might also surprise the many fans of Moonfire, but in the best possible way. There are still traces of their indie folk roots, but with added muscle, extra texture.
