The wood block drum beat intro and clarinet like trills fit nicely in the song, agreeing well with the slinking feel of the chorus, that evokes a strange dance pattern in the back of mead which features smooth shoulder rolls. The catchy chorus also features a distinct euphony with its lyrics, a strange assortment of images that roll nicely off the tongue. I’m not sure what about the song gives me a Jurassic feel, perhaps its the title or the primitive drum beat, but I just can’t shake that this is the dinosaur song.
Dinosaur song or not, the catchy melodies of this song and the rest of Burning Bush Supper Club make Brooklyn based rockers Bear Hands. If you hear a resemblance to fellow indie-poppers MGMT, you shouldn’t be surprised to learn that front man Dylan Rau was classmates with MGMT’s VanWyngarden and Goldwasser at Wesleyan.
Bear Hands recently came to the 40 Watt, oddly opening for Motion City Soundtrack, fresh off their set at DelunaFest. If you are dying for some more animal based appendages, be sure to check out some of their other songs like “Crime Pays” and “What A Drag.” Anyways, enjoy!
