The Shaky Hands - Let It Die

Big pond to swim in, classic rock. For their third album The Shaky Hands have dusted off the gritty, lo-fi preoccupations that once earned them comparisons to The Strokes and plumped for a much cleaner rock ‘n’ roll sound.

While the A-side stomps with the tight, mid-paced 4/4 of more rattled numbers, its flip side meanders through rock ballads and poppier fare which hang from the quivering vocal of Nick Delff.

Without the noisier production favoured for previous releases, The Shaky Hands are goldfish in a more seasoned shoal of rockers.
