Not great so far...

zander919,

I really am not a fan of this new style so far. I know it's only a few songs but everything I love about Boy and Bear is completely absent in Walk the Wire and A Thousand Faces... Why would they switch producers and put out a less unique, more synthed-up kind of material than what they've previously done before? So far this is a far cry from the simplicity of bands like America that Dave has claimed they have emulated in their earlier LPs. Get rid of the poppy electronic, gimmicky riffs and get back to the old stuff guys. All in all, still a huge fan and hope I am pleasantly surprised by the rest of it.

Meh

aa11bb223,

I feel like this is over produced. The raw sound of the earlier records seem to fit his voice better and has more soul. This sounds cheap.

About Boy & Bear

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
