Track of the Day

TRACK OF THE DAY: Broken Hands – ‘Four’

Whoever says that creativity in music is dead, hasn’t journeyed to the outer reaches of our isle. Case in point, within the sleepy, commuter-friendly pastures of Kent hides a heaving underbelly of dreamers and creatives. Who’s progressive thinking, and real love for exploring the very limits of where self-expression and sonic inventiveness can take them, has spawned some of the best musical outpourings in the country. Look no further than Canterbury psych-rock five-piece Broken Hands, who delved deeper than they ever have before on debut album ‘Turbulence’ and in doing so, have produced a work that bares their own original flair and sonic flavour.

Today they bring us another fuzzy behemoth to add to their ever-growing collection of impressive releases to date, entitled ‘Four’. The track doesn’t break the two minute, thirty mark yet it still manages to pack as much conviction and sheer velocity into its bars, as its lengthier cohorts ever could. We could yarp on for hours about how great this track is, but we’ll let the music do the talking, as only its power-charged riffing can fully actualise the band’s vision.

‘Four’ will be released on 25th March via So Recordings. The band will also be touring throughout April in support, dates can be found below.
