Bear Hands – Golden

I was listening to the Kings of Leon’s new album today. Woke up 10 minutes later on an O’Connell Street monument with the faint sense that my ears were aching. It’s obvious I need something a little more chewable, a distant riff that sounds vaguely familiar but enticing enough to warrant greater than solitary listens. Oh, this will do just nicely from Brooklyn’s Bear Hands, an unsigned foursome who’ve been getting important tongues wagging and discerning ears flapping. It’s raw; stripped of several quintessential rock traits but boy does that circular riff leave some sharp memory traces long after fade out. The ‘Golden’ EP is out now, it kills the competition with its bare hands and keeps monument traffic to a minimum. KD
