Meet Bear Hands: Too Pure‘s latest darlings, connoisseurs of fragile, echoey indie-pop, fans of animal masks and Lethal Bizzle chains:
They’re also quite partial to boxing and boobs, if the ultra lo-fi video for their new single ‘What A Drag’ is anything to go by:
This is the track (a double a-side on March 2 with ‘Can’t Stick Em’) as remixed by fellow Brookylite and ex-White Williams drummer Cale Parks. He lists an admirable chunk of prog rock on his MySpace, which is well worth a quick look here.
Bear Hands, meanwhile, live on MySpace here (they’ve got Ambulance Ltd in their top friends – wtf?) and are just finishing up a tour with Hockey and Passion Pit. If you live in Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow or Leeds you’re in luck if you’re quick.
