"Bear Hands- The group you wish you were in."
"..While hints of lo-fi indie and post-punk v2.o float about on their debut, the songs catch fire from their own spark. No grungy depression or post-millennial anxiety, just solid tunes.."
"Bear Hands prove they have everything it takes to make it massive in 09."
"Debuting with two slices of New York folk/rock shuffle, Bear Hands display all the individuality and style of bands formed in isolation. A weird fetish with tambourines and cymbals dominates the splashing sound of “What A Drag” in the way a sort-of ethnic folk Talking Heads meeting an unusually relaxed Velvet Underground might sound. The voice is defiantly American, the backing defiantly invigorating."
"Also performing on this incredible line up will be Bear Hands. Press has been off the hook in the US and the UK for their debut four song ep “Golden” which was produced by Andrew Schneider (Cave In, Pelican) and for their live shows, Bear Hands have been fortunate enough to share the stage with bands such as MGMT, Vampire Weekend, Ra Ra Riot, Ambulance Ltd, Cursive, Ted Leo & The Pharmacists, Le Savy Fav."
