All lyrics from Shields album, popular Grizzly Bear songs with tracklist and information about album.
Shields is Grizzly Bear's most compositionally adventurous record. Though full of baroque, detail-rich production and latticework melodies, it also offers an emotionally resonant core. The album is an excavation of loneliness, melancholy, and self-reliance. Shields is Grizzly Bear's most compositionally adventurous record. This is a foreground. That was the last lyric left hovering in the mist of Grizzly Bear's breakout 2009 album, Veckatimest, and it's a pretty good image to describe what it's like to listen to one of their records. The key word there is "a," signifying one of many.
Grizzly Bear is an American rock band from Brooklyn, New York, formed in 2002. The band consists of Edward Droste (vocals, guitar, keyboards, omnichord), Daniel Rossen (vocals, guitar, banjo, keyboards), Chris Taylor (bass, backing vocals, woodwinds, producer), and Christopher Bear (drums, backing vocals). The band employs traditional and electronic instruments. Their sound has been categorized as psychedelic pop, folk rock, and experimental, and is dominated by the use of vocal harmonies.
Shields isn't exactly a dramatic return then, which is somehow fitting considering that this is some of the band's most cerebral music. There's nothing here with quite the instant appeal of "Two Weeks" or the aching vulnerability of "Foreground"; instead, most of these songs lie between those two poles.
But Grizzly Bear is different. Their insistence, their style, is something that’s almost impossible to ignore, and the changes even more. Admittedly, the uniform doesn’t change much on Shields.
Grizzly Bear has decided to stirr up their sound, making Shields a somewhat more progressive and intimate album than Veckatimest. It was a real grower for me, as certain aspects of this record just didn't hit me as hard as I would have liked. But for every listen I grew to appreciate the extremely rich and detailed song structures more.
Grizzly Bear revealed that they were working on a new album on May 10, 2011. The release date, track listing and the song "Sleeping Ute" were announced on June 5, 2012, while the title and cover art was announced on July 9, 2012 On September 9, 2012, Shields was streamed in its entirety on NP. .On September 27, 2012, a music video for "Yet Again" was released. On January 28, 2013, a music video for "gun-shy" was released.
Grizzly Bear used to be dreamers. Now they’re waking up in a cold sweat. Where a former Grizzly Bear might have wandered somewhat aimlessly or gotten caught up in one pocket of subtle noise or one lyrical motif (as on Yellow House‘s Colorado for example), Shields is damn near obsessed with avoiding these rootless instances. It’s too busy caving in on itself. The songs on Shields are conversational and argumentative. Compositions spark dialogues between musical styles, eras, and moods, all under an umbrella of self-awareness and mutual understanding
