After what seems like an eternity, Boy and Bear have returned with a brand new single called ‘Southern Sun‘.
After being one of the hottest acts in the country two years ago with their breakthrough debut album ‘Moonfire’, Boy and Bear’s latest single is pretty exciting, perhaps only second to the news that their sophomore album ‘Harlequin Dream’ will be out before the end of the year. And there is so much to love about ‘Southern Sun’ with a return of those magical harmonies and Dave Hoskings voice sounding as good as ever. The song kicks straight into one of Boy and Bear’s almost iconic grooving folk rhythms, and then get spiced up by a sexy cascading guitar riff that just lifts this song into the top echelons of indie folk being released in Australia as of late. If going to Splendour wasn’t already exciting, the prospect of seeing a host of new Boy and Bear songs being unveiled is certainly something I cannot wait for. Needless to say after a couple of listens, we are addicted to ‘Southern Sun’.
