According to the band's official site, NEW HANDS "are an electronic band operating out of the UK/Canada, making music for late nights". An accurate description, but somehow not enough to describe New Hands' nostalgic sound, like something from the Donnie Darko soundtrack, or The Smiths meeting Rick Astley in the future (there is definitely an electronic influence to be found in the music). The low-register vocals stand out, and the melodies in songs like 'Swimming' are often stuck in my head. There is definitely a certain feel or atmosphere surrounding the music, something that is rare to find.
