Live Gig Video: Broken Hands perform single ‘Meteor’ in front of a sold out London Electrowerkz crowd

By on Wednesday, 8th July 2015 at 4:30 pm

Back in March, Broken Hands performed several gigs in front of a sold out crowd at London Electrowerkz and lucky for us, someone had the good sense to record them performing. In the below monochromatic video, they’re playing their new single ‘Meteor’, which is currently making the rounds on Huw Stephens’ programme on Radio 1 and Steve Lamacq’s on 6 Music. Frontman Dale Norton explains the promo:

The video was filmed at our Electrowerkz show in London where we rolled out our Silver Landing Program (part of which is silvering the venue head-to-toe in foil). It was our biggest capacity to date and took 284 square metres of silver parachutes to cover it! Once we added strobes the room and crowd went mad! It’s all captured for ‘Meteor’.

Broken Hands have just announced today some very exciting news: the band’s debut album ‘Turbulence’ – its name keeping in line with their long-time preoccupation with flight – will be out on the 9th of October on So Recordings.
