Who else is sick of ‘summery singles’ from dreamy bands that remind of the beach and make you sad that the reality of your life is staring out the murky window of your multi-story office block? Well, you’re in luck. North East three piece, Seeing Hands, are back and bringing with them a darkly brooding, off-kilter-pop record in ‘Take Me Back’, a track which is far more rooted in reality than daydream. After all, who hasn’t experienced a love lost?
‘Take Me Back’s’ lashings of reverb hit you like strong, disorientating waves, pulling you under into their world of nostalgia and longing. Fans of the band will be happy to hear the return of distinctive jangly guitars, psych-tinged synths and slacker-love song lyricism. To accompany the release, ‘Take Me Back’ has been set to a stunning video piece produced by Blair Alexander Massie, check it out here.
Speaking about the release the band have said: “The song is about how loss can turn to lust, and not realising what you’ve got til it’s gone. Something we can all relate to I think… The film is a visual based representation of the contrast between the entanglements of a relationship and the euphoria of releasing these ideas away from the body.”
You can download ‘Take Me Back’ or grab yourself a shiny vinyl from the Seeing Hand’s Bandcamp page.
