“Agora” by Bear Hands from the band’s recent full-length Distraction (Cantora). You might think I’m double posting this, as I put a video up for this song back in Feb. This video (more like a lyric video), was directed by Sami Jano and Steve Meierding and “playfully incorporates the track’s lyrics into a wildly colourful montage of cluttered items strewn around the home of the titular agoraphobe”.
“High Society” by Bear Hands, from the debut full length Burning Bush Supper Club. The new video draws on the work of artist Chuck Close for inspiration and was created using four computers, 10,000 images and 78 takes of the song.
Above, that’s Irish trio Two Door Cinema Club performing an acoustic version of their latest single ‘Undercover Martyn’.
‘Finishing up their debut full length album, Bear Hands will be promoting What A Drag along with songs from their previously self released debut, The Golden EP and boasting new material across the US nationwide this February leading up through SXSW’. You can download the track ‘What A Drag’ from their website, along with a remix and a song called ‘Can’t Stick Em’.
I spent some time today at IGIF and am digging into what they were recommending these days, and was delighted with Airship. Four-piece from Manchester, UK with some great tunes. This year they’ll be putting out a debut LP as well as dates with Editors. Check out the killer track ‘Algebra’ (below), which before this song was only really a killer subject.
