Biography

Down By The Current EP released June 10th
http://brokenhands.bandcamp.com/merch

The new EP from Broken Hands ‘Down By The Current’ was inspired during last summer’s festival season…

In the words of lead singer Dale Norton: ‘’Plagued by torrential rain, I waded through T-In The Park’s Scottish mud and stopped at the live arena to witness hundreds of mini-events unfold. Couples tore each other apart whilst flocks of drug infused followers droned on. Groups of new-found friends danced without a care for time, or the knowledge that their tent had also been engulfed by the torrent. All this was fueled by the music - the songs on this EP are anchored to these and our own experiences. Those people were in the moment and we want our music to be there when it happens again.”

Meeting at school, Dale (vocals), Jamie (guitar), and Thomas (bass) quickly discovered a mutual love for Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac coupled with long windy walks. Joined by Dale’s younger brother Callum (drums) they formed a band named in homage to Chief Broken Hand from Western flick ‘White Feather.’ It’s been a series of stage invasions, bloodied microphones, blown amplifiers, soldering fuzz pedals and good times ever since.

Barely out of their teens, these boys are ardent students of rock’s evolution, their cultivation of psychedelic rock, garage and blues influences has gathered them shows and festival dates up and down the country. But residing in the picturesque but relatively muted Canterbury in Kent, Broken Hands felt the need to start something of their very own.
