Tracks: NEW HANDS – Tulips

May 7, 2012

Hamilton indie rock outfit New Hands have been on The iM’s radar since last October when they dropped the infectious This I’ve Heard single on the masses. I haven’t forgotten about them and it’s because I haven’t taken the track off my iPod since – I probably listen to it at least once or twice a week.

So… when I heard the band had a new single out, I was naturally excited to hear it. Well… let’s just say, they don’t disappoint and I couldn’t be more stoked to share it with you. Check out Tulips in the embed below and be sure to download the track absolutely free of charge.

The song which was produced with Michael Keire (Apostle of Hustle, Wildlife, Dark Mean) will be included on their upcoming debut release. We’re not exactly sure when it’s coming out but as soon as we know more, you’ll be the first to know. Until that time, keep up-to-date with New Hands over on Facebook.
