Bear Hands :: "Giants"

Bear Hands return single, "Giants" spills out of the gate with a ratatat alacrity. The half-rap-half-sung verses recall the metronomic lyrics of Cake's "The Distance" but lost in an amphetamine blur, colliding over and over with the chorus and its invocation, "I'm loving you more". Spiriting the listener away on the back of self-assured bombast, Bear Hands sound every bit like the exciting criminal element they describe in one of the opening lyrics, "never been to jail 'cause I never get caught". A dance-floor heater with no express ideology or recommendation, some songs just want to watch the world burn.
