BOY & BEAR Introduce new single ‘Feeding Line’ OUT TODAY! 9/5/2011
Australia’s miners of musical marvel Boy & Bear
are back with the brand new single ‘Feeding Line’ available digitally today. A natural progression from their stripped back, folksy roots, ‘Feeding Line’ oozes with driving beats and soaring melodies.
Boy & Bear has spent the past four weeks locked away creating their brand new, yet to be titled debut LP. Recorded in Nashville with producer Joe Chiccarelli (The Strokes, White Stripes, The Shins), the forthcoming album is an evolution from their highly acclaimed debut EP, With Emperor Antarctica.
Boy & Bear will be on the road again this autumn for a sold out national tour. The band will bring their rich harmonies and inspiring live show back for some intimate live dates before their return performance at this year’s Splendour In The Grass festival.
Boy & Bear’s debut EP With Emperor Antarctica delivered the band to the forefront of the music scene in 2010. The confident body of work was Australia’s second highest selling physical EP in last year’s ARIA charts. They grabbed numerous accolades, not only taking out last year’s triple j’s Unearthed J Award, but also receiving a Rolling Stone Award for Artist to Watch in January. The band also scored two spots in the world’s largest music poll, triple j hottest 100. Their cover of the Crowded House classic ‘Fall At Your Feet’ landed the #5 position and their own track ‘Rabbit Song’ was similarly adored at #45.
“There’s a sense of menace – danger almost – in their music: driving, urgent rhythms, snaking melodies and harmonies that are smoke, not sugar. On stage, in full flight, they’re breathtaking, somehow haunting and euphoric at the same time”. – Dan Lander, Rolling StoneBOY & BEARNew single – FEEDING LINE – available digitally TODAY
