WATCH: Bear In Heaven’s New Video for “Sinful Nature”

Premiering earlier this morning on Pitchfork, Bear In Heaven’s new video for “Sinful Nature,” off their third album I Love You, It’s Cool, encapsulates an acid trip induced version of the feature film Pretty Woman. Director David Yoonha Park based the video on his first experience with LSD: “a panic-inducing experience” that skated between watching the Masters tournament and failing to bring down the trip with the tape. BiH wanted something dark, feminine and trippy and the music video is just that; women clad in 80s garb promenade around the set, with shots of creepy manikins intermittently placed for quite a weird viewing experience.

Love for I Love You, It’s Cool

“For better or worse, I Love You begins and ends with its irrepressible and impossible to ignore lead single, “Reflection of You.” It’s Bear in Heaven’s best song to date, a ever-climbing sing-along with the most ass-shaking beat the band have thrown down yet.” Prefix

“Yet the ultimate kiss-off is delivered in Philpot’s deceptively sinister intonation, “I know what it is/It’s a phase/You just don’t know.” The power lies in the pregnant pause between “phase” and “you,” imbuing the line with devastation and regret. It’s subtle moments like these that illustrate just how far Bear in Heaven have progressed as songwriters, and I Love You, It’s Cool is an album rife with them.” Under the Radar
