I discovered Bear Hands through watching the controversial MTV show, Skins. The song above is probably one of my favorite songs I have heard on the show and unfortunately I have seen all the episodes. The four-piece band has a post-punk feel to them but with a bit more electronic feel. The music video only makes the song better as it shows a variety of bad stuff like cheating and throwing firey objects at windows. However in the “Crime Pays” music video they also offers a bunch of other random things in teh video like a person walking the dog to people boxing.
Bear Hands are from Brooklyn, released an EP in 2007 then took 3 years to release their debut album last November, Burning Bush Supper Club (buy on Amazon). You should watch out for this upcoming indie rock band because they sound a bit like MGMT and Cold War Kids and have performed with MGMT (the lead singer was classmates with the two founding members of MGMT), Vampire Weekend, The XX, and Fitz & The Tantrums.
