Brooklyn-based Bear Hands has been quickly gaining popularity amongst indie-rock fans since the release of their new album Burning Bush Supper Club. They’re signed to Cantora Records (MGMT, Francis and the Lights) and they give us exactly the kinda sound you would expect from that label – which we’re certainly not mad about! Their video “Crime Pays” was edited by OneHundredDown’s own Music Video Editor, Dorian Tocker. The video shows a series of slow-motion vignettes, loosely based on the idea that crime does indeed pay. The video is bookended by the same young boy first stealing a purse and then the camera right out of the director’s hands.
Is it just me, or is that Mike Tyson in the video???
Check them out at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn on March 14th!
