Video: Grizzly Bear - "gun-shy"

Grizzly Bear gun-shy

What does creative energy look like exactly? That's what director Kris Moyes was hoping to rhetorically figure out with the video for Grizzly Bear's "gun-shy". Through almost tongue-in-cheek extraction methods, the film maker and the Brooklyn act attempt to display creativity on a "molecular level".

In a message posted to the band's official tumblr, Moyes states: "Science has tried unsuccessfully to explain where creativity comes from. Why some humans have a creative drive and others do not, why this person can draw but does not have a musical ear, or why this person is better suited to the clarinet and not the guitar, and why some people can play every instrument they come into contact with."
