You might have thought at this point, I'd run out of praising words to write about The Hundred in the Hands. So not the case, in fact, I've got hundreds of heartfelt hurrahs in my hands (see what I did there?) to dish out, especially after catching the pair live at Warsaw last night, playing to a full crowd of kids on the first night of Northside Festival.
Chalk it up to being on tour for the past month with The Golden Filter, or maybe it's a refinery of their sound since the release of their EP, but The Hundred in the Hands blew me away with a perfect performance, that was both engaging and entrancing. Beginning with the fan favorite, Tom Tom, the half hour set included an extended version of one of my favorite songs in Ghosts (video of that below) before rounding out with the much riffier and totally danceable song, Dressed in Dresden.
If I might...one more time...do your ears the hugest favor in the world and start obsessively listening to The Hundred in the Hands. Buy their This Desert EP here.
