Since “Hold Your Nerve” was released in the last couple of weeks I’ve been hearing it all over the radio. It’s great that a band like Boy & Bear is still able to pump out songs that get the radio listening public excited. And “Hold Your Nerve” deserves the success its been getting – the track is classic Boy & Bear, combining their love of 70s folk-rock with the anthemic indie-pop they’ve becoming known for.
The track is taken from Boy & Bear’s newly announced album Suck On Light which will hit our ears on the 27 September. They also have a bunch of shows announced in August with tickets selling fast:
Thursday 15 August – The Tivoli, Brisbane, QLD
Friday 16 August – The Forum, Melbourne, VIC
Saturday 17 August – Enmore Theatre, Sydney, NSW
Friday 23 August 2019 – The Astor, Perth, WA
