Leeds indie-pop troupe Just Handshakes will be releasing their long-awaited debut album next week.
After a slew of singles that have picked up a small but dedicated bunch of fans, Say It will no doubt bring them a whole new crop of admirers. And it’s not just their popularity that has expanded, but their sound too, if taster track ‘Bright Lights’ is anything to go by – it sees the band shake off their C86 roots and take on a more widescreen, epic sonic palette. Listen to the track below:
Say It is out on May 20 through Bleeding Gold Records. The band will also be embarking on a trio of live dates to support the record from later this month – at The Old Blue Last in London on May 21, The Hadfield in Sheffield on May 25, and Newcastle’s Head Of Steam on June 1.
