Following the success of their 2018 release Anon, Aussie rock faves Hands Like Houses are back with a brand new song titled ‘Space’. The track encapsulates themes of isolation and communication, and feels like an emotional reflective statement of this isolation period we’ve all been in lately. Vocalist Trenton Woodley explains:
“It’s strange that that sense of emotional claustrophobia has fast-forwarded to this literal one with COVID-19. Since we tracked it, I haven’t actually read the lyrics written down until now and there’s a strange sense of deja vu, like I wrote them yesterday, with full knowledge of everything that’s happened in the last few months.”
“I wanted it to feel tired, not hopeless, worn out but not ready to give up just yet. I didn’t want it to sound like I’d stopped trying. I wanted it to feel like coming out of a long silence, to say ‘please be patient. I can get this right. I just need a little faith, a little trust, and a little bit of space to get myself back together.’
I’ve always enjoyed anything these guys put out, and ‘Space’ is no different. It’s a solid addition to the band’s collection of rock!
