Invisible Hands spent the best part of two years holed away recording with various producers including Simon McGrath, Lee Malcolm (Vessels) and Andy Hawkins (Pigeon Detectives / The Twang). Having now burst onto the Leeds music scene, their first public offering comes in the form of 'Storm', a four minute anthem in the vein of Editors, The Walkmen and The Strokes.
The single is accompanied by a raw and intimate music video, produced by Hear Me Roar Productions (Hannah Trigwell), directed by Natasha Arciniega (Funeral for a Friend), with Director of Photography Adam Conlon (Dinosaur Pile Up).
Invisible Hands write songs on the classic themes of Western poetry; love, loss, alienation and hope. Whilst Storm is a brisk, dark and melancholy affair, the accompanying tracks, Come Down With Me and Wall, reveal a stylistic breadth to their music, drawing comparisons to The Verve, The Killers and LCD Soundsystem.
Prior to making their live debut, Invisible Hands featured on Tom Robinson's site 'Fresh on the Net', being described as "The trans-Atlantic love child of The Verve and The Killers." Bella Union / Amazing Radio's Simon Raymonde described them as a "great band".
Despite only playing a handful of live shows, Invisible Hands have already performed at Leeds' increasingly legendary Brudenell Social Club, and Surya in London. Future dates include a return to London supporting Violet Bones at Mother on June 22nd, accompanying a Leeds date on Friday 21st June at 360 Club - The Library.
Storm will be released on July 1st 2013 on iTunes and via independent record shops. You can listen to it below:
