Hairy Hands is almost entirely self-reliant.
The producer has no real need to look outwards – he's got everything he needs at home. This all results, though, in some weird, way out sounds… sounds that don't quite resemble much else around.
Debut album 'Magic' is forthcoming on Tape Club, with Hairy Hands ready to unveil new cut 'Suns'. It's a wonky piece of electro-funk, with the woozy sound effects matched against a loose-knit sci-fi theme.
The producer explains:
"'Suns' was one of the first tracks I worked on for this album. It started life as a simple drone/drum break and grew & changed shape from there. I wanted the album to explore my interest in space travel/sci-fi/b-movies and built a story about a time in the future where planet Earth has lost its Sun. The song follows the young and old of planet Earth on the beginnings of their search for a new home in outer space. The chorus also reflects the fact that we all have a Sun within us to grow things and share our warmth for our fellow species/others and the surroundings we inhabit. Using an old reel to reel to resample parts (warp/time stretch) of an old Yamaha synthesiser I'd played and adding layers of trombone and moving them around."
Check it out now.
'Suns' will be released on June 17th.
