Watch the New Bear Hands Video for "High Society" & Get Your Mind Blown

The latest video from Bear Hands for "High Society" involved more than 4 Mac towers sweatily rendering over 10,000 videos out in New Orleans bayou.
The video was directed by the band’s guitarist Ted Feldman who said this of the filming, "Andrei Bowden-Schwartz and I had this idea to make a "video mosaic": a collection of videos playing simultaneously that together make up one larger video image -- like a moving Chuck Close portrait. We didn't know if it was possible, so we called our friend and tech guru Bob Weisz (director, Big Freedia's "Y'all Get Back Now") and talked it out. He said that he thought it would blow up the computer but that he would try. So, I made my band play the same song a thousand times, we shot it from all different angles, and Andrei and I joined Bob in New Orleans to edit the thing and see if it could work. We developed the idea, and despite the many many hours it took for our computers to process all the information, we ended up accomplishing what we had set out to. Every tiny box on screen is its own video, and we're all still friends.

"Burning Bush Supper Club" is available on vinyl! Buy it from the band on the road or at the Cantora General Store.
