Seeing Hands - 'I Knew You' Single Review
Since their first release, ‘Treat You Right’ appeared online a few months back, the name Seeing Hands has rapidly spread around the music scene in the North East, leading to shared shows with the likes of A Festival, A Parade, The Great Curve and Cape Cub among others, and gaining a coveted spot opening at The Cluny at Evolution Emerging in May.
Not 6 months after that first release, Seeing Hands boast a high reputation as one of the best emerging dream-pop acts in the North East, an ever growing fan base which is gradually spreading from the region, and now, a brand new studio single.
Influenced by Wild Nothing, The War on Drugs and Real Estate, ‘I Knew You’ is a gorgeous blend of sweeping vocals, atmospheric production, a running drum beat and an array of infectious electric guitar melodies. The minimalistic instrumental performances work together seamlessly to create an intricate soundscape, resulting in a tight and highly well-crafted track. Tinged with nostalgia and dripping in reverb, this makes for a fitting mid-summer release.
There is a release show with limited tickets remaining happening on August 12th at Think Tank, with an excellent line-up including The Old Pink House and Heist.
Tickets are £5 on the door.
