Just Handshakes - London Bound by Bleeding Gold published on 2013/01/20 02:19:05 +0000 TO DOWNLOAD THESE MP3S, PLEASE VISIT BANDCAMP: http://bleedinggoldrecords.bandcamp.com/album/bg043-london-bound ‘London Bound ‘is the first single from Just Handshakes debut album ‘Say It’ which is set for release on California based record label Bleeding Gold later this year. The single comes out on the 18th of February and is a free digital download accompanied by a remix on the B-side. The video was shot on super 8 film by analogue filmmaker Cherry Kino and the single was produced by Matthew Peel and the band. With their following steadily growing, the band have recorded a session for Marc Riley and received airplay from Steve Lamacq, Tom Robinson and Gideon Coe. They have enjoyed support slots with bands such as The Mystery Jets, Pete and the Pirates, The Shout Out Louds and Still Corners. JUST HANDSHAKES formed in Leeds whilst at university. Their sound has developed gradually with each of their releases. The band have a varied range of influences but a shared love of C86 is apparent in their songs. This single sees them drop a little of their earlier catalogue’s brightness for a darker, more angular approach. Since their EP the band have been reasonably quiet, tucked away writing and recording their debut album ‘Say It’ and surfacing briefly last year on record store day to release a limited run of tapes. The band are now looking forward to touring and the release of their debut album.
