Watch: Boy & Bear – ‘Suck On Light’
“The song is about hope,” explains frontman Dave Hosking. Who, in May, revealed that he had been battling a debilitating illness since the band’s 2011 record, Moonfire. “The moment I personally started to feel like I was on the improve, the moment things started to look up. The choruses always felt like a celebration of life and I think that sentiment carries across the song as a whole.”
Suck on Light will arrive on Friday, September 27th. The band self-produced the record alongside Collin Dupuis (Lana Del Rey, The Black Keys) and mixed it in with Grammy Award-winning engineer Tom Elmhirst (Arcade Fire, Beck, Amy Winehouse.) You can find the tracklist and album artwork below.
