Watch: Boy & Bear - Walk The Wire

Watch: Boy & Bear - Walk The Wire

The Sydneysiders stay straight-faced through some serious strangeness.

After live premiering it at this year's Splendour in The Grass, Boy & Bear have been winning fans left, right and centre with their catchy new track Walk The Wire, which they've chased up with news of their forthcoming album release, Limit Of Love, will be album number three for the Sydney act. When it first came out, we said of the track (and stand by it, a fair few listens in!) "Walk The Wire is upbeat, catchy, and repetitive in all the best ways. With electric guitar riffs and 80s synth-vibes, Walk The Wire gets everything right."

Today Boy & Bear share the visual treatment for the laidback track, a little something they dreamed up with award winning creative directors Oh Yeah Wow, who in the past have created stirring visuals for Gotye (Easy Way Out), Hermitude (Through The Roof), and Tuka (Nirvana). The wacky, meta video self-references the act of Boy & Bear making a video we see the band just casually playing on the moon, before the its revealed to be a greenscreen, and they're on a video clip shoot. As Dave Hoskin sings "it was the strangest scene, that I didn't seem to fit into..." the lyrics are reflected on the film set - the director's not happy with things not going to plan. Guitarist Killian Gavin explodes, only to be replaced by an animated, evil Killian, who then drives the film set into a state of complete anarchy, while the boys keep completely straight faces the whole time.  

It's the perfect light-hearted, humourous clip to accompany what's sure to be one of this Aussie summer's cruisy indie anthems.
