Known for its soulful melodies and lyrical depth, the album remains a pivotal moment in Boy & Bear’s career, promising a nostalgic journey for fans who have been part of this musical adventure since its inception.

Boy & Bear’s journey to musical stardom began with their double-platinum debut album, Moonfire, in 2011, which garnered five prestigious ARIA awards.
