Single Review: The Hundred in the Hands – Commotion

The Hundred in the Hands from Brooklyn are releasing their second single ‘Commotion’ on 15 November. It’s taken from the duo’s self-titled debut album released in mid-September. The beats are massive and fun to dance to, and wow, it was so amazing to hear live in Philadelphia and Boston.

The more I hear Eleanore Everdell’s voice, the more I am in love with her delivery. There hasn’t really been a good female singer for dance music in a while…I’m thinking Donna Summer. And there is a fragility and vulnerability in Everdell’s vocals that stands in compelling odds with the dancey instrumentation in ‘Commotion’. There is word that a promo video has been filmed already for this song, done by the same director who filmed ‘Pigeons’. So look forward to that as well.

8.5/10

The 12″ of ‘Commotion’ to be released on 15 November features a non-album edit mix of the track, mixes by the illusive duo Tiger and Woods and DFA Records’s Capracara, plus a brand new unreleased track called ‘Aggravation (La La-La La)’.
