Hands is an indie dance rock group driven by ever-present synth and bass. Funky, garage-distorted grooves form the core of each song peppered with psychedelic, futuristic keyboards. Geoff Halliday’s gripping vocals careen in a high register supported by his band mates’ vocal vamping and harmonic chatter. The constant pound and clink of bright snare shots pair with rigorous guitar licks.
“Videolove” the stand out track off their recent record “Synesthesia” is a euro-pop inspired youth anthem fit for club and concert hall alike. The band’s success lies in their ability to manipulate and fill the atmosphere with texture. If you’re searching for synth pop done right, look no further than Hands.
