A reader points to a late summer release from Boy & Bear:
This band sounds so familiar, but in a way I can’t place at all. Every time I listen to this song I think that it sounds EXACTLY like some other band I’ve listened to ... but then I can’t figure out what that other band is. Maybe a little bit of Dire Straits? A little bit of Noah and the Whale? Whatever it is though, I’m into it.
It’s off their newest album:
[T]he third Boy & Bear album will be titled Limit of Love—due for release Friday 9 October—and aimed to shake up their traditional methods while working with Ethan Johns, a British producer who's worked with Kings of Leon, Kaiser Chiefs, Laura Marling, and Ryan Adams. […] Lead single ‘Walk The Wire’ marks a fitting introduction to the shift in attitude and sound. Gone are the sweeping folk rock and Americana of ‘Southern Sun’ and ‘Feeding Line’ and in its place is a synth-squiggled shuffle of wiry guitars and an exposed vocal delivery from Dave Hosking.
