Psychedelic Video Accompanies First Grizzly Bear Song in 5 Years

The colors, the movements, the matching rhythm in the background… The new video for “Three Rings” is just as captivating as the song itself, the first one released in the past five years. It is from the fifth album the band plans to release as a follow-up to 2012’s Shields. The album itself has not yet been named, however, much to the curiosity of fans and new discoverers of the alternative rock band, nor has it been given a release date. So many have been patiently waiting for over a year to hear news about said album. What is a few more days, weeks or months?

“Three Rings” has had fourteen video teasers of late that have been steadily released since April, finally appearing on all music platforms just at midnight on May 5. Quite the matchup there. After 5 years of hibernation, a single from the fifth album is released on the fifth day of the fifth month of this year. Beautiful strategy we would say to that. The album is expected to be “more adventurous” as per Grizzly Bear, while “Three rings” fairly bursts with an impeccable mix of guitar, bass, keys and synths. It is like weaving, each of the instruments perfectly crossing one another to create a rather dramatic melody that pulls you right in. Great to listen to as you try to get your work done during the day.

The Brooklyn rock band was formed back in 2002 and consists of Edward Droste, Daniel Rossen, Chris Taylor, and Christopher Bear. The combination of genres, from Indie rock to psychedelic pop and experimental music, really sets them apart from the rest. It is about time the group came back to the world of music, especially since their work is the perfect blend of traditional and modern. Now to patiently wait for more news about the album release.
