New Audio: The Shimmering, Dream Pop Sound of Newcastle’s Seeing Hands


With the release of their debut single “I Knew You,” the Newcastle, UK-based quartet Seeing Hands, comprised of Kev Curran (vocals, guitar), Nick Hodgson (lead guitar), Jon Varty (bass) and Liam Guillan (drums) have received airplay from the likes of BBC Radio 6 and XFM, as well as attention across the blogosphere for a shimmering guitar pop/dream pop sound that sounds as though it owed a debt to the 4AD Records sound and to contemporary acts like DIIV and others, complete with a gorgeous yet wistful sense of melody as you’ll hear on their latest single “It’s True.”
