Bear Hands – Giants

Bear Hands - Giants

Bear Hands – Giants

Bear Hands is a US indie rock band, comprising of Dillon Rau, Val Loper, Ted Feldman, and TJ Orscher.

Having studied at the same college as MGMT, Bear Hands unfortunately missed the wave that MGMT rode in 2008, and were too late for the punk rock scene in the early 2000’s. However, the tide has changed and the bands persistence is starting to pay off.

As apparent with all Bear Hands’ tracks, they take a while to mature. The track ‘Giants’ was actually released in late 2013, but some cheeky remixes have been doing the rounds of late and ‘Giants’ has picked up momentum again.

The tone of ‘Giants’ is summed up with the sexy, but pretty frantic video which features the band watching some girls rock out.

The director, Mark Pellington, explained about the video; “I wanted to make a sexy noisy pop blast…The energy and weird electric sense of desire and aggressiveness of the track was our theme…Love this band and this piece.”

‘Giants’ is taken from the new album ‘Distraction’ which was released in the UK on 8 August 2014 via Warner Music UK and available for purchase on iTunes here.
