I first discovered Hands Like Houses when they opened for Of Mice And Men last year, since then I’ve been a massive fan – travelling to Southampton to catch them live again just a month after seeing them for the first time. And they’ve blown me away again with their release of ‘Drift’. The single comes alongside an announcement of signing with Hopeless Records.
‘Drift’ differs slightly from their older music, drifting towards a slightly heavier sound. Trenton screams, sings and shouts, definitely giving the song a more hardcore edge than their previous songs. In a Facebook post the band describe ‘Drift’ as being about a “momentary lapse in momentum, where everything is still long enough to question where you’re going, where you’ve been and how they are somehow supposed to connect in the middle.”
The obscure music video sided with crazy vocals create a pretty awesome song. This video is full of old short clips, some featuring images of war and others of love. The eclectic mix of images really match the song and help create a very interesting atmosphere. This song has me very excited for what could come next and what direction they’ll be going.
If you haven’t listened to the song, make sure you go download it. If you like what you hear, be sure to check out their album ‘Dissonants’ and keep an eye open for new music and tour announcements. This band from Canberra, Australia will keep on rising – make sure you’re there to witness it.
