Australian rockers Hands Like Houses have returned with their new self-titled EP. The gritty and uninhibited release features the singles Space, The Water and Dangerous.
The EP navigates themes of collisions, resolutions, communication and expression, exemplifying confidence and vulnerability. Their latest track, Dangerous, has quickly become a fan favourite, with vocalist Trenton Woodley sharing: “Something about this song has always been uncomfortable for me – when we started, 'Dangerous' was meant to be playful, confident, even arrogant – but as it came together, it felt like a reflection on frustration and losing control when all your confidence falls apart. Ultimately it’s about feeling pretty dangerous and really being afraid of exploding.... almost like a tension bottling up and thinking ‘get out of my way'.”
Throughout the tumultuous year that is 2020, Hands Like Houses have been keeping busy by performing various lifestreams for their fans, whilst also giving a phenomenal performance of Fuel’s Shimmer for triple j's acclaimed Like A Version segment. The band also performed an exclusive live set for Triple M's Garage Sessions. The band are hoping to hit the road as soon as possible, with fans being encouraged to sign up for their mailing list to be the first to know. Hands Like Houses have become one of Australia’s most acclaimed rock bands, having sold out tours worldwide and achieved ARIA charts success.
