New Hands are back and they sound more self-assured, laying down another great track for us to groove to. The Hamilton, Ontario band lived together for over a year, recording and immersing themselves in the music. You might ask, why only one track after a year? I don’t know the answer to that, though I suspect that there is definitely more to come from the band in the near future.
What we do have is great though, and a bit different than the last track we heard (“Tulips”). New Hands said they designed this track to make you think, feel, and dance. The band itself sounds very polished, with a galloping beat that feeds directly into those vox which always stand out for New Hands.
You’re not good with thinking, oh you could only happen to me
But the music’s too loud here to make it matter anyways
There is this liquid sounding breakdown around 2:30 into the track which is particularly interesting, and delves into new ground; it sounds like rock meets club, a-la The Strokes scratched on a turntable.
