White Iris Records is kicking off 2013 with a 7” release from L.A. based alt-rockers Hands. When recording last fall in preparation for an upcoming full-length album due out in April on Kill Rock Stars, the band found the songs were more powerful than they had originally anticipated, ditched much of the subdued synth parts and the electronica influences for a more live sounding method of arranging. The result of all this stripping is the addictively rhythmic a-side: "I Want To Know."
In this track, guitar and bass lines are constantly on the move, rounding the corners of these songs with the utmost precision. Singer and keyboardist Geoff Halliday is able to apply his craft, keeping everything floating along together in the utmost of harmony.
The 7” single featuring “I Want To Know” and B-side “Exactly Sharp” will be out on January 29th through White Iris Records. Check out the entire track below!
