Take Me Back with Seeing Hands - An Interview

Pouco menos de dois é a idade de vida do trio inglês, Seeing Hands, e mesmo sendo novatos, os caras tem identidade de gente grande.

Mesmo porque no mundo do dreampop, tudo pode ser extremamente perigoso, mas quando acerta-se a mão, a coisa flui intensamente.

Sinta a brisa leve e adocicada do novo single dos caras, "Take Me Back/Love You Still", e deixe fluir a cintilante melodia por entre sua mente, e uma tenra sensação de tranquilidade vai dominá-lo por completo.

Assim é a música pop, quando ela beira a perfeição, como no caso do Seeing Hands, palavras soam meras coadjuvantes.

***** Interview with Seeing Hands *****

Q. When did Seeing Hands start? Tell us about the history...
Kev - Seeing Hands started about a year and a half ago. I had wrote a bunch of songs and needed to start a band, then we met through mutual friends and bonded with similar music tastes.

K- Drunk

Liam - There's no better feeling than nailing a live set and knowing that both you and the audience have thoroughly enjoyed the experience

Q. How do you describe Seeing Hands sounds?
Liam - If Duran Duran and The Smiths had a baby.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
K - Currently we record at The Nave in Leeds with Alex Greaves. Alex is great, we usually send him a demo a couple months prior and by the time we get there he is engulfed in the song already with all sorts of ideas. He's the man.

Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
K - I'm bang in to Porches at the minute, Mood is perfect.

K - We have an EP coming out in October then we will tour early next year. Once that is out the way we can concentrate on a full length which we can hopefully release in summer 2018.
