Grizzly Bear


Grizzly Bear

Not to be confused with Panda Bear of fellow brain-trippers Animal Collective, Grizzly Bear take a more measured route to freaky songcraft. ‘Knife’ splashes deep into the watery depths, sounding not unlike a cornucopia of lazy sea creatures playing oceanic Tropicalia. Starfish on timpanis. Manatees on the cymbals... that sort of thing. There’s also a Beach Boys influence evident in the heavenly harmonies and perfectly judged production. But then what else is a band made up of sea creatures going to sound like?
