Grizzly Bear – “gun-shy” Video

By Tom Breihan / January 28, 2013

We’ve already heard the Lindstrøm remix, and now here’s the squirm-inducing video for Grizzly Bear’s Shields song “gun-shy.” Kris Moyes directs the video, and shows the band in all sorts of body-horror situations: Eyes melting, skin bubbling, veins jumping. There’s a part about toenails that seriously queased me right out. And yet Moyes films everything in gorgeous bucolic early-evening light in the middle of verdant woods, its beauty making all these medical tricks somehow harder to turn away from. Watch it below.

Shields is out now on Warp.
