BOY & BEAR
Sydney NSW
Indie folk-rock

Formed in 2009 as a solo vehicle for Sydney-based singer/songwriter Dave Hosking, Boy & Bear specializes in evocative and heartfelt indie folk-rock in the vein of contemporaries like Fleet Foxes, Bombay Bicycle Club, and Mumford & Sons.

Rounded out by guitarist Killian Gavin, bass player Dave Symes, and brothers Tim (drums) and Jon Hart (mandolin, keyboards), the Aussie quintet inked a record deal with Island Records on the strength of its independently released first single, “Mexican Mavis.”

The group’s debut EP, With Emperor Antarctica, dropped in early 2010, followed in 2011 by Boy & Bear’s debut long-player, Moonfire, which went platinum in their native Australia.

The band’s sophomore outing, 2013’s Harlequin Dream, would go gold. Their next album was captured, as much as possible, live in the studio direct to tape with producer Ethan Johns (Paul McCartney, the Vaccines), and represented a shift into synth-aided guitar pop. Limit of Love arrived in October 2015. ~ James Christopher Monger. ‘Limit of Love’ has been nominated in the “Best Rock Album” category at the ARIA Awards announced on Wednesday 23 November.
