Brooklyn-based duo The Hundred In The Hands have released This Desert EP on Warp Records. This Desert strikes a path that touches on elegant French pop, blissed out dub, house and post-punk. The 6-track EP sets the stage for deeper explorations on a full-length this fall.
The Hundred In The Hands is Jason Friedman and Eleanore Everdell, who make emotionally charged and intensely driving music, harking back to the most classic of dance songs from NYC's storied underground. They describe the EP as, 'The more ethereal side of our tastes; Summertime-Gothic and dreamy tracks that go well with open hydrants and looks that kill.' But the self-description belies more than just a dance band. Everdell and Friedman bend and blend styles, sounds and eras into something that doesn't feel confused, fake or forced. It just feels fun.
