"The Wearing Hands and the doo wop punk, power pop noir of "Closer To You""

The sort of sound that The Wearing Hands craft, mine, coalesce is popular. Listen to "Closer To You" and you will here some genre blending. Doo wop punk, post punk, power pop noir and a particular indie rock revival that feels particularly East Coast circa late 70's (further blending romance wave and proto punk). A lot of bands are doing this kind of thing but, I don't know, The Wearing Hands' aesthetic feels at once super fresh, freewheeling (maybe even a revival of indie rock revivalism), and tightly wound with Dwyer-esque spring reverb boings. Super cool, fun, magnetic and in many ways elevated.

The band hails from Beckley, West Virginia and feel like sunshine and youth in a bottle. I really dig the lead vocalist and the snap to the drumming and intricate rhythms. - American Pancake
