Acclaimed Canberra five-piece Hands Likes Houses inject a fresh dose of modern stadium rock into Australia’s thriving alternative scene. With ARIA success, critical acclaim, a triple j feature album, sold out tours and legions of global fans under their belt, the band with over ten years together are poised to break even more ground as they step into this new decade. Hands Like Houses – comprised of Trenton Woodley (vocals), Matt Cooper (guitar), Alex Pearson (guitar/vocals), Joel Tyrrell (bass/vocals) and Matt Parkitny (drums) – will release their self-titled EP in October 2020, and with it, beckon fans into a new era of HLH. Collisions, resolutions, communication barriers and expression heavily inform the themes found on the EP. Laying bare the journey that took place penning the release, the band take listeners on a deep-dive into the EP’s whirlwind writing and recording process – scars and all. Musically, the Hands Like Houses EP takes everything the group have become known for over their 10+ years of recording, pulses it together and births their next step forward – a gritty, bold and rock- fuelled effort that is undoubtedly their most refined to date. Hands Like Houses EP is released Friday October 23 through UNFD.
