BOY & BEAR’S NEW ALBUM OUT Written together as a full band and recorded live to tape with Ethan Johns (Ryan Adams, Kings of Leon, Kaiser Chiefs), Boy & Bears third studio album Limit Of Love is has been released. Recorded in the inspirational surroundings of Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studio, Limit Of Love has already been met with great praise across the country.


The Wainwright Sisters will be releasing their anticipated new album Songs In The Dark on 13 November.

same songs, some penned by their mothers and father (Loudon Wainwright III) on Songs In The Dark.

Although they’re sisters, Martha Wainwright and Lucy Wainwright Roche didn’t grow up together. Aside from genetics, their true bond was a musical one, both growing up in families steeped in songwriting. Both their mothers would sing them lullabies (Kate McGarrigle to Martha and Suzzy Roche to Lucy) – now, to honour that 30 years later, Martha and Lucy are singing many of these

The record also includes songs that shaped their childhoods, made famous by the likes of Woody Guthrie and Jimmie Rogers. When Martha and Lucy grew up and became songwriters of their own, they discovered their physical separation was trumped by their shared musical DNA. On Songs In The Dark, this is captured in its elemental essence: dark, mysterious, and beautiful.

The first single released from the album, Walk the Wire, fuelled by a gritty guitar and synth groove was instantly added to Triple J (reaching number 1 Most Played) and the Triple M

Network. Driving the success of the song at radio and online has been the hilarious and somewhat out-of-character video for Walk The Wire, directed by award winners Darcy Prendergast and Josh Thomas from the Oh Yeah Wow, (Gotye, The Paper Kites, Hermitude). Anyone who has seen five-time ARIA winners Boy & Bear perform will attest to their power as a live outfit. With three full-length albums and hundreds of hours of gigs under their belt, the band will be taking their show to Europe and the USA with the Australian National Limit Of Love Album Tour to follow early 2016.
