Bear Hands – What A DragBy thatch • Mar 10th, 2009 • Category: Indie, Music, Rock
Bear Hands formed in Aug 2006. They’re doing the best they can.
This is a quote from Bear Hands’ page at www.myspace.com/bearhandsband. It tickled my sense of humour because they’re doing pretty damn well.
Four guys from New York, doing the usual “overnight sensation” grind. Playing every gig they can get and it is starting to pay off.
Bear Hand’s bass, drums and percussion provide drive that is sharp and crisp. The guitars are loud, and just perfect. Vocals and lyrics round off a really interesting package.
There is a ton of talent in this band and it sounds as if it is all starting to come together. Have a listen to “What A Drag”. The rythym section will have you just itching to turn it up. Their music covers a wide range of influences and this appears to be putting some critics off, me I think it makes them.
