Grizzly Bear plays body music in bizarre video for “Gun-Shy”

Grizzly Bear: ShieldsGrizzly Bear: Shields (Warp, 9/18/12)

Brooklyn-based indie rockers Grizzly Bear produced a killer album last year in Shields, a sweeping combination of the electric and acoustic that cements them as one of the genre’s elite. Now they’ve produced a disturbing but beautiful video for “Gun-Shy,” one of the album’s standouts. Evoking elementary-school science videos as well as body horror, the band’s use of animated GIFs might just win it some sort of newfangled Internet award.
