New Music - The Soft Hands

A few weeks ago while I was innocently searching for cover versions of Bruce Springsteen’s “I’m On Fire” over at The Hype Machine I came across a song with the same name by The Soft Hands, a band from Long Beach, CA. Well, my first listen may have been accidental, but I was hooked right away. The Soft Hands have an angular, post-punk sound - something close to a West Coast version of The Strokes - with lots of distorted energy and fuzzy guitars. The band is completely independent at this point - their only available music is a digital EP - 3 songs of which you can hear below.
