Canterbury five-piece Broken Hands are headed on a collision course with a ‘Meteor’ on their new space rock enthused masterpiece. ‘Meteor’ is the second single to be taken off the bands forthcoming debut album, and from what we’ve heard so far, it seems like their trajectory is only heading in one direction: skywards.
From the initial blast of fuzz-fuelled sonics and soaring guitar riffs to the sharp buzz of electronic feedback and sizzling vocal delivery, ‘Meteor’ is a hell of a ride.
Self-contained in a mere 2 minutes 58 seconds, it’s a short burst of intergalactic escapism that will leave you craving for more with each and every listen. Talking about the track, frontman Dale Norton says: “The song is all about chasing the evening. The night itself is the meteor. You’re on its tail in a Russian MIG-29 jet, trying to catch up but you never will… your co-pilot is telling you to turn back but you persist! It’s the most straight to the point track on the album I think!”
The band have also announced a 3-show London residency, which they have dubbed as ‘Jet-Power-ed Lunches’. Talking place at Dalston’s Power Lunches and kicking off this week on Thursday 18th June. Tickets are all free, but on a first-come-first-served basis and knowing how well their shows usually go down, it’s best to get down there early to guarantee entry.
