Hands Like Houses - Reimagine Cover

Hands Like Houses have re-worked some of their tracks from last year's 'Unimagine' into a new EP called 'Reimagine'. Clever, that!

Stretching themselves much further than a simple acoustic guitar or wob or two, ‘Reimagine’ is Hands Like Houses’ deconstruction of five favourites from ‘13’s ‘Unimagine’ with a unique and ingenious twist that allows this EP to become a whole entity of its own. The floaty guitars, mellow keys and bongos on ‘Revive (Introduced Species)’ would be a perfect fit for a stroll around their (usually baking hot) home in Canberra, Australia, while the stripped-down ‘Reflect (Developments)’ allows the vocal melodies to shine, underlining the innovation that has, and will continue to see Hands Like Houses soar.
