I have had a proper lull in my music interest as of late. My mind has been preoccupied with books, films and art, so music has taken a bit of a back seat, listening to the same old music over and over. But when the family asked what I wanted for Christmas and I didn't have much that I wanted I started to explore some recommendations from ages ago and see where that lead me.
I have fallen in love with music all over again
It's a bit late to add them to my Christmas list but hopefully I can snap up a few in the New Year sales :) One of the bands that I found was Boy & Bear. There an Australian folk rock quintet and they are bloody brilliant! If you like Mumford and Sons (adore them!) then you will love these. I might even go as far as to say there better (Yes. I go there!). They have such an exciting sound. The guitar, banjo and drums paired with the sweet soft harmonies go hand in hand and give them an edge that put them a cut above the rest. I think they are breath of fresh air in my slightly stale music library and their album will be the first thing I buy when I get my loan through. They give me goosebumps!
To get a taste listen to 'Fall At Your Feet' 'Rabbit Song' and 'Feeding Line' Now go buy the album - Moonfire!!
