Three Imaginary Girls

Seattle's Indie-Pop Press – Music Reviews, Film Reviews, and Big Fun

Looking like they just rolled outta bed from their night-jobs, the Hands took the stage at Neumo’s and immediately set forth to rock the house.

The Hands' raw and emotional brand of explosive rock grabbed hold of the audience and did not let us go to the point that I even got chills three fourths the way through the set. I’ve seen them in small venues, medium sized and now at two different festivals and these guys have increasingly proven their chops.

Their pace is frenetic with an up-tempo 1970’s southern rock feel to it but their themes and method of connecting with the audience are universal. Piercing vocals and a defiant and aggressive rhythm section are another aspect what set this band apart from their predecessors.
