Treading the line between psychedelic and blues-rock, Jamie Darby (guitar), Thomas Ford (bass) and brothers Callum (drums) and Dale Norton (vocals) make up Canterbury’s young quartet, Broken Hands. Thick bass lines accompany contagious guitar hooks, forging a sound that grabs you forcibly by the pelvic region, keeping a firm grasp until the final note and leaving you gasping for more.
The roots of R&B run strong in the Kent rockers, but dare to call what they do ‘classic’ rock and they’ll scoff politely: these are contemporary songs, culled from countless sessions in their basement rehearsal space.
'Hands began cutting their teeth at self-organised shows in Canterbury before recording debut single Brother – produced and released by Edwyn Collins. This prompted successful UK and European tours with Band of Skulls, Deaf Club and Kill It Kid respectively.
A productive summer in 2012 saw the band release 7” If You Need To Lie and play sell-out headline shows both at home and in London before making a number of festival appearances including T In The Park, Rockness, Dot-to-Dot and Live at Leeds.
Kicking off 2013 playing alongside Palma Violets, the band are now in the studio working on new material.
