Following the release of their single ‘Space’ back in June, Aussie rock legends Hands Like Houses have announced a brand new self-titled EP to be released this October via UNFD. The band have also unleashed another new song off their forthcoming EP, titled ‘The Water’. The track is a punchy, infectious track of good ol’ Aussie rock, it’s hard not to get into it. Diving deeper in the song, ‘The Water’ sees Hands Like Houses ponder their sense of belonging in life. Vocalist Trenton Woodley explains:
“I picture the protagonist as some beautiful, fantastical, strange and surreal sea creature that has come to live among us, but wants to go home. I feel like the voice of this song is one that has done its best to make a place to belong, but knows it doesn’t, can’t or won’t, and is trying to say a heartfelt, honest goodbye.
“Of course, that’s not to say there’s not a piece of me buried in that voice. I don’t think you get to come this far in life without wondering if you really belong to this particular path you’ve found yourself on, if there’s not somewhere else or someone else you’re meant to be. The harder the times, the bigger the question becomes in your mind. When it comes down to it, it’s a song about closing doors and opening new ones.”
