Bear Hands – Giants
There’s nothing particularly remarkable about the video for “Giants,” Bear Hands‘s lead single from Distraction, but it draws one’s attention as a series of moving portraits. There’s a photographer’s aesthetic at work here and viewers are bound to want to look deeper at the people flashing across their screens. The track has the energy of fellow Brooklyn band Matt & Kim but with a cool gloss on the chorus that has more in common with California’s palm trees and convertibles than New York’s concrete and subways. Watch the video and fantasize about the warm summer nights that are on the way.
