Wednesday night I was a little bit more than giddy to finally get to see Aussie five-piece Boy and Bear play to a fairly packed room at Brooklyn's Knitting Factory. I've been hardcore crushing on their EP With Emperor Antartica for months now, but had missed their last US jaunt and was bummed about it to say the least. But finally everything came together, and they definitely did NOT disappoint. If you're a fan of bands like Local Natives and boys who rock jorts and cute accents to boot, Boy & Bear are more than just a little up your alley.
Their debut LP, entitled Moonfire, was released stateside this week, a definite must listen. With this much buzz and talent, there's little doubt in my mind that Boy & Bear will continue stealing hearts here in the US on another tour jaunt very soon.
