New Music: Boy & Bear

18 Jul

I swear there seems to be more and more great music coming out of Australia and Boy & Bear are the latest such group.  After putting out a rocking EP, Emperor Antarctica, and spending some time touring with Mumford & Sons, the five-piece folk group are getting set to release their first full length record, Moon Fire next month.  If the more upbeat, “Feeding Line” is any indication, this could shoot right up as one of the top albums of 2011.  I haven’t heard the CD but from this single and their previous EP, these fellas have a bright future ahead of themselves.  Lucky for us in the States, they are playing Lollapalooza in a couple weeks (followed by two NYC shows)!  Give a listen and judge for yourself.  And if at first listen you start thinking it sounds a little Brandon Flowers/The Killers-ish, you’re not alone.
