Post-Punk Quartet Bear Hands on MGMT Comparisons: "It's Kind of a Pain"

The indie-rock outfit also talk their new video for "Peacekeeper," touring plans and reveal which member snagged a perfect score on his SATs

Thanks to collegiate beginnings at the same university (Wesleyan University in Connecticut), getting signed to the same independent record label (Cantora Recrods) and a sound that's evolved from punk-y to dance-y, indie rockers Bear Hands have been inextricably linked to MGMT since their 2010 debut. 

Backstage at Coachella 2014Fuse News correspondent Jack Osbourne finds out if they're sick of the constant comparison.

"It's kind of a pain, to be honest," says guitarist Ted Feldman. "We went to the same college, I think that's where it came from. But it's kind of all the time."

But don't think the BH boys harbor any hard feelings towards the "Your Life Is a Lie" duo. Feldman adds, "We all love that band, they're great." while lead singer Dylan Rau says, "I really like them."
