"Bear Hands- One of the first groups to record a webster hall live set."
"I try not to have crushes on bands, but I don't know if I can help myself with Bear Hands."
"The September shows kick off at The Macbeth in Shoreditch with a much anticipated headline show from Brooklyn’s Bear Hands, who have recently been sharing the stage on tour with Passion Pit and Hockey. This will be their first headline tour following the release of their limited edition 7” single in March, ‘What a drag’. They have received extended play on Radio 1 and 6, and are creating a lot of hype - this show is expected to sell out fast. Support comes from Swimming and The Antlers."
"Brooklyn’s Bear Hands sound like an American Gang of Four with more compressed energy, like Dandy Warhols with a pulse or Cold War Kids without the weak choruses. No overdoses of menace, ennui or wimpiness here, just solid stuff."
