Oh Daisy is the brilliant new single from Hunter & The Bear. Recently they have shared quality airtime on Bob Harris’s BBC Radio 2 show, to an unbeatable slot supporting Eric Clapton on his arena tour, the band’s deft employment of hard rock riffs and melodic song-craft has seen them championed by some of the biggest names in music.
Oh Daisy delivers as much force in its electrifying instrumentation as it does in its anthemic chorus. All the band’s celebrated hallmarks are there: the bold and biting guitar tones; the richly textured harmonies; and of course the epic and soaring melodies that are confidently delivered by front man Will Irvine, a singer who possesses true vocal maturity.
The single resonates with the particular energy of a band who, in true rock and roll fashion, honed their talent on the road. One of the hardest working bands around, Hunter & The Bear have spent most of their time together tirelessly gigging across the country, setting venues alight at each and every stop.
Between their acclaimed festival performances at Reading, Leeds, and Loopallu and their sell out Highlands and Islands tour, in recent years the band have accumulated a vocal legion of fans that are as enthusiastic as they are loyal.
As much as the band’s roots run deep in the traditions and timbres of rock and country, Oh Daisy has all the qualities of a modern classic. Rather than chasing the limelight or aping the latest trends, Hunter & The Bear have found a fresh sound and dedicated following by staying true to great music that inspired them.
