Just Handshakes: London bound (Single, 2013)

BG043 | London Bound cover artDesde Bleeding Gold continúan sorprendiéndonos. Su eclecticismo es enorme, y de vez en cuando nos encontramos en su catálogo bandas como Just Handshakes (Leeds, Uk), que tienen ese encanto de los grupos británicos de los noventa. Supongo que entre su libro de influencias seguro que está el C86, pero también, por qué no, ese Pop tan característico de las Islas (sí, me refiero, por qué no, a Joy Division) y que en seguida reconocemos en cuanto escuchamos los acordes de temas como este London bound y el sonido de ese teclado tan característico. Un temazo que la banda quiere compartir con todos nosotros para que lo oigamos y difundamos.
Preparan debut para esta primavera, y habrá que estar muy muy atentos…


‘London Bound ‘is the first single from Just Handshakes debut album ‘Say It’ which is set for release on California based record label Bleeding Gold later this year. The single comes out on the 18th of February and is a free digital download accompanied by a remix on the B-side from friend James Hare. The video was shot on super 8 film by analogue filmmaker Cherry Kino and the single was produced by Matthew Peel and the band.

With their following steadily growing, the band have recorded a session for Marc Riley and received airplay from Steve LamacqTom Robinson and Gideon Coe. They have enjoyed support slots with bands such as The Mystery JetsPete and the PiratesThe Shout Out Louds and Still Corners.

JUST HANDSHAKES formed in Leeds whilst at university. Their sound has developed gradually with each of their releases. The band have a varied range of influences but a shared love of C86 is apparent in their songs. This single sees them drop a little of their earlier catalogue’s brightness for a darker, more angular approach. Since their EP the band have been reasonably quiet, tucked away writing and recording their debut album ‘Say It’ and  surfacing briefly last year on record store day to release a limited run of tapes.  The band are now looking forward to touring and the release of their debut album.
