COLOUR: Orange EXTRAS: Signed by the band!
Boy & Bear have announced their fifth studio album. The self-titled follow-up to 2019’s Suck on Light was released independently on Friday, 26th May.
“We wanted to make an album of seductive grooves, soaring melodies, modulated ambient textures, and great stories,” bassist Dave Symes said of the band’s fifth album in a statement. “We worked hard to strike the right balance between vintage and cutting edge, polished and sure, but full of heart and wild touches.
“Experimenting with analogue and digital became a happy place on this record, not just in the way we created sounds but also in the way we wrote them, performed them and put them together. After lock down it was great to all be back together in the studio, exploring the music we had been creating via various forms of correspondence. Nothing beats the feeling of getting the band back together and making music collectively.”
