Broken Hands are a quartet originating from Kent. Consisting of two brothers, Callum and Dale Norton, in addition to the two other members, Jamie Darby and Thomas Ford, Broken Hands are an indie band that are preparing to release their new single If You Need to Lie later this month on May 28. The four-piece have been very busy in recent months, having toured Europe as the opening act for Band of Skulls, in addition to selling out their first show in London. Despite being in the relatively early stages of their career, Broken Hands have received a warm reception and have been announced as performers at this year’s T in the Park concert, a feat that is sure to boost the band’s profile even further.
If You Need to Lie, the band’s latest release, is an upbeat song, with the tempo changing midway through the track for a while, allowing the lead singer to show off his unique vocals. If You Need to Lie is a very strong song, featuring excellent verses, which build into the catchy chorus, causing the song to remain embedded in the listener’s head.
Be sure to catch Broken Hands as they perform numerous dates in the UK in the coming months, including gigs in Brighton on May 19, Coventry on May 28, and of course, T in the Park on July 7.
