The Belle Jar- Union Station
Mar 5, 2014
Hailing from Brooklyn, NY, Bear Hands was born from the same mold as hype-generating bands like MGMT, Chairlift, and Passion Pit. However, Bear Hands has yet to be snatched up into the ever-reaching mainstream. Rest assured, it won't be long though.
Bear Hands self-released EP, Golden, caught the attention of Cale Parks, known for his work in indie band Aloha, as well as his solo work. He even remixed one of their latest songs, "What a Drag." They sound somewhat similar to bands that they have shared the stage with, like Ra Ra Riot and Ambulance Ltd.
The band's brief autobiography states simply: "Bear Hands formed in Aug 2006. They're doing the best they can." That's all we could ever ask for.
