Bad, Bare Bears

Icelandic director Einar Baldvin’s animated video for Bonnie Prince Billy’s new single, Cold and Wet, is a bittersweet tale of mummy and daddy bears and what can happen when bear love dies. Just goes to show you should never trust a crocodile.

Icelandic director Einar Baldvin’s animated video for Bonnie Prince Billy’s new single, Cold and Wet, is a bittersweet tale of mummy and daddy bears and what can happen when bear love dies. Just goes to show you should never trust a crocodile.

The single is taken from BPB’s latest album, The Letting Go, and is out on Drag City on 14 November.

The three suitably surreal commercials that preceeded the release of the album are also available to watch on the BPB page on the Drag City site.
