Single Review: S.C.U.M – Amber Hands

‘Amber Hands’ is the first single from London band S.C.U.M’s upcoming debut album expected to drop in September. Already loving tracks like ‘Summon the Sound’ and ‘Berlin’, ‘Amber Hands’ is definitely no stranger to me. The single, alongside with its artistic video by Matthew Stone, gives listeners a brief insight to what their debut’s direction may be. The video features fabrics in different colours and glimpses of the S.C.U.M members. The tone of the video is really soft and mellow: it’s because of the pastel colours, you see. With respect to other tracks, I guess the album will mostly comprise of rather heavy-sounding tracks like this one. The single will be released both on 12” vinyl and digitally. It comes with the B-Side entitled ‘Fountains’ and remixes by Sonic Boom and Silver Apples (both remixes you can listen to below).

8/10

‘Amber Hands’ from S.C.U.M. is now available via Mute.
