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