Bear Hands, Dana Swimmer

If you haven’t dug in by now, it might be high time to catch up with Bear Hands. The New York-based band has been around for a couple of years now, but its prodigious, synth-affected output has finally sparked national attention. The band’s latest album, Distraction, produced a strong single in the song “Giants;” the bouncy yet aggressive track seems ubiquitous on the net. Having toured with similarly electro-infused pop acts like MGMT and Passion Pit, the group is now making the rounds as a headlining act in smaller clubs across the country. Its stop at the Melting Point is conveniently scheduled at the tail end of finals week, so you have no excuse for missing it. Win tickets and other swag on Homedrone.
