It's hard not to have Grizzly Bear's music on repeat—it's pretty, haunting, and catchy all at once. Now fans have a new way to show their affection for the band with the release of two new T-shirt designs, available next week, by artists J. Penry and Brendan Donelly. Penry is known for his engrossing and subversive illustrations, as well as his quirky, Daily Candy-endorsed pet portraits. He delivers a mix of just that for his tee's design, cramming an army of cats on the bottom, and a huge three-eyed Persian on top. Donelly, a seasoned T-shirt designer, doesn't skimp on the strange either, using a two-headed trout splashing from a river for his piece. Even someone who's never heard Grizzly Bear would want to wear these frighteningly good works of art.
