ACT NAME: Chalk Hands
GENRE: Emo, Screamo, Post-rock
HOME TOWN: Brighton
MUSICAL FAMILY TREE: Pianos Become The Teeth, Russian Circles, Caspian
WHY CARE: Effortlessly drifting between crushingly heavy and beautifully delicate, this four-piece combine intense post-rock soundscapes with desperate vocals. The result is a gripping blend of epic highs and devastating lows that the band rightfully describes as “loud, sad songs”. After meeting within the city’s vibrant underground scene, the band was soon formed over a mutual passion for creating sincere and expressive music. New EP “Burrows & Other Hideouts” (Future Void Records) is the first offering from the outfit since their inception earlier this year.
KILLER TRACK: “Burrows”
