Alternative Press - "Frontman Dylan Rau is one of the best vocalists of his generation....Rau conveys breathy tenderness, withering sarcasm, terminal ennui and introspective neurosis..."
Clash (magazine) - "Constantly genre-blending throughout, the Brooklyn foursome blur the lines between electronic, rock and folk music on `Boss' making for an interesting concoction that is unusual but welcomed."
Audio Mixer: Alan Moulder.
Recording information: River Run and Doctor's Wu's, New York; Terminus Recording Studios.
The indie rock quartet's third full-length album offers more of Bear Hands' mix of slick melodies and urgent post-punk that landed them on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart with "Giants" in 2014. Two years later, You'll Pay for This features the single "2AM," an anthem for the aging ("All I want is to forget how old I am/Nothing good happens after 2 A.M.") and a streaming hit that also returned them to the alt chart. The record was co-produced by bandmember Tim Feldman and James Brown, a veteran engineer who's worked with the likes of Foo Fighters, Arctic Monkeys, and Jeff Beck. ~ Marcy Donelson
