Broken Hands Channel Early Kasabian And Royal Blood On New Track ‘Who Sent You’

If Kasabian have got too bombastic for you of late, then Canterbury’s Broken Hands are a neat reminder of how the Leicester band used to be. They pack the thunder of Royal Blood (perhaps what drew the Brighton duo’s producer Tom Dalgety to work with them on debut album ‘Turbulence’), and write bold mini-anthems with subtle experimental undercurrents just like those Tom and Serge excelled at on their debut. ‘Who Sent You’ is the perfect example of that – thumping and infectious, with a hint of darkness to it. As frontman Dale Norton explains, it “describes the moment when paranoia takes over from fun experiences and [a] strange other worldly voice enters your thoughts.”

Broken Hands’ debut album ‘Turbulence’ is released on October 9 via SO Recordings, preceded by ‘Who Sent You’ on October 2. Catch them at the following tour dates:

London Barfly (September 16)
Manchester Soup Kitchen (October 28)
Glasgow Broadcast (29)
Birmingham Sunflower Lounge (30)
