Display of vocal prowess
Just when you think cool bands are all about long hair, blazing guitar solos, and wild stage dives, well…those are cool, too! But so is Boy & Bear. This charmingly tame band sets the stage on fire with their brand of folk that has been capturing audiences since 2009. The band was formed by guitarists Killian Gavin and David Hoskin, bassist David Symes, drummer Tim Hart, and multi-instrumentalist Jonathan Hart. All of the members of Boy and Bear have vocal duties, making their music easily recognisable by their signature singing style. Their multiple layers of voices make up a rich chorale effect, complemented by the dynamic ensemble of instruments. Sung lyrics sit on a bed of different harmonies, which are subtly underlaid by hums and doo-wops, maximising all of the band members’ voices. The instruments are usually headlined by clean guitars and highlighted by synthesizer inserts. As for the overall groove, the band keeps the rhythm section slow and steady, providing a sturdy backbone for catchy melodies. The result is a dreamy kind of indie folk that sounds new, yet utterly familiar.
