Old Favourites: Grizzly Bear – “Ready, Able”

“Five years, countless months and a loan…”

Ahh, Grizzly Bear. There’s something about this band that always leaves me feeling remarkably pleasant. There’s the harmonies, the lush instrumentation, the cuteness of Ed…wait, what? Anyways, there’s plenty to enjoy about the band and this translates particularly into their music videos. This is my personal favourite – it’s peculiar and often downright weird, but at the same time it can be strangely beautiful. The animation is incredibly well done, and fits in with the light-and-dark contrast that the song itself provides. That’s really where the best animated videos work – by taking the songs to their next level. That’s in my experience, anyway. See what you think!
