Ten Hands High are back with another stellar track, Sweet. The song is set to appear on the bands forthcoming debut EP, due out later this year.
Conceptually, the song documents finally moving on from a relationship that met its demise, set atop a shimmering indie-rock soundscape that weaves in elements of alt-pop.
Speaking of the track, the band share: "This is the first song and title track of our upcoming debut EP (hopefully being released in May). The first line of this song encompasses its overall message - "I've forgotten what tears taste like, I've been sweet for a while". It's a song about finally getting over someone you've been in love with (or at least thought you were in love with) for years. This song and EP mark a step into a new genre for us, combining our indie rock roots with elements of alt-pop/rnb."
Based in London, made in Leeds, Ten Hands High's sound is an eclectic mix of the alternative scene, spanning genres to encompass the best of indie rock, anthemic pop and uni nostalgia. After releasing their debut single in January 2019, they proceeded to play several packed out shows in their hometown of Leeds. The band were in creative overdrive, releasing 5 singles in 5 months, selling out their debut London headline at the Hope and Anchor in Islington along the way. Having supported Spilt Milk Society, The Clause and Luna Bay, TenHandsHigh are quickly becoming a live act to be reckoned with.
The band's 2020 output which they called 'Phase 2' consisted of three singles - Red Wine, 6 Weeks and Silent (With You) and propelled them to radio play on BBC Introducing: The South and top playlists like Spotify UK's 'Student's Union' and This Feeling's 'Best New Bands'. Silent (With You), which was made BBC Introducing: The South's Track Of The Day, signalled a shift in musical direction for the band towards more R&B and hip hop influenced indie rock.
