Single review by firstname.lastname@example.org
There does seem to have been a minor resurgence in rock bands getting actual record deals recently, so it's a little surprising that Kent quartet Broken Hands haven't joined them yet. We're assured they're an incendiary live act so a UK tour earlier this month may just have helped their cause. Earlier this year they put out their EP 'Down By The Current', and we covered the record's first single 'Curves' shortly before they were due to support The Rolling Stones at Hyde Park, and not every band can put that on their CV. Reports suggest they more than held their own too, which makes us think that a deal must be imminent.
To coincide with the tour (or because of our tardiness, to celebrate its completion), the band have made this video for another EP track, 'Pulled Under'. We don't feature a lot of hard-rock or lad-rock as it's generally not our bag, and while there's not too much laddishness about the band, the sound is similar and would probably appeal to fans of the heavier stuff too, despite it hardly being Slayer. Really they're an indie-rock band of the variety that both NME and Kerrang will love. And we say that with some conviction: will love. Because if they haven't discovered them and featured them already then the countdown to the hype must surely be under way. Broken Hands have the potential to be big news.
