Boy and Bear
1034 N. 4th St., Milwaukee, WI, 53203
Boy and Bear’s soft indie-rock has won them acclaim in their homeland of Australia, with both their first and second albums debuting in the top ten and receiving multiple nominations at the Australian Recording Industry Awards. Their first album Moonfire was recorded in Nashville, and the city’s country influences are evident. The group’s music delivers an insistent rhythm with no rough edges, as guitar, keyboards and percussion blend into a smooth mixture that puts their echoing vocals on full display.
