Video of the Moment #2200: Broken Hands

Time sure flies, doesn’t it? This time last year, I was watching Kent band Broken Hands at an in-store performance at Rough Trade East. The band were gearing up for the release of their debut album ‘Turbulence’, out now on SO Recordings. You can read my review of the long player through this link; it was #5 on my top 5 albums of 2015, so you know it has to be good. Last week while I was in the Emerald Isles, they released a new version of the promo video for ‘Meteor’, a longtime live fan favourite and an excellent example of the organised chaos combined with sheer power that this hard rock band creates.

Originally filmed live at a show at London Electrowerkz as part of their ‘Silver Landing Program’, the entire venue was swathed in silver foil, not unlike what they tried to do in Austin at SXSW 2014, except the wind wasn’t cooperating. Indoor venues at ground level are a little more accommodating, ha. Watch the retooled version of ‘Meteor’ below. The last time I saw the band was when they performed at the Smiling Buddha at Canadian Music Week 2016. But for even more of TGTF’s coverage on Broken Hands, head here.
