The Playlist: Boy & Bear


With five ARIA Awards on the mantelpiece, Boy & Bear know how to craft a hit but they’ve taken a fresh approach with their third album, Limit of Love. For the first time, the band wrote the music as a collective and recorded live to tape – the old-fashioned way. Here, the Sydney five-piece share their favourite songs, including Alabama Shakes’ Don’t Wanna Fight, the “perfect mix of blues, funk and rock ’n’ roll”.
