Hidden Gem: Bear Hands

February 20th, 2011 by | Hidden Gem, Music Video, Rock |

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.

Here’s a few of my favorite Bear Hands songs.
Long Lean Queen
Crime Pays
Blood and Treasure
