Broken Hands

NOTORIOUS for playing shows that welcome extra-terrestrials, Kent fivesome, Broken Hands present themselves as being confident show-masters with a head for out-of-this world aesthetics.

Debut album, Turbulence, recorded at a number of studios including Wales' Rockfield, is due to land on 9th October, after being produced by Tom Dalgety who has seen recent success with the likes of Royal Blood and Band of Skulls.

In conjunction with the album, there is set to be an eight-date tour around the UK, spreading over the autumnal months.

These lads are not short of supporters either, receiving airplay from the likes of Annie Mac and Huw Stephens and not to mention recently being picked by Catfish and The Bottlemen front-man, Van McCann to have a little feature on MTV.

It comes as no surprise that when track, Meteor was dropped as a single, taken from the album, that the response was truly something out of science fiction. Crash-landing with an array of scuzzed chords and alien synths, a raw beat is offered up as a statement, matched with front-man, Dale Norton's punchy vocalism, Meteor carries fury and desire in a single, potent instrumental. This sound rings through similarly in other tracks such as Death Grip which was released in March this year.
