January 25, 2016


For fans of… Trans Am, Battles, the Fucking Champs, Tortoise 
“…leaves you wanting more.” – Visions
Right Hand Left Hand are set to release their new single Seat 18c out January 29th via Jealous Lovers Club.

In advance of the release they’ve shared a new video for the track which premiered on Visions who described it as a “… compromise between Trans Am and Tortoise.” You can also watch it now on Right Hand Left Hand’sYouTube page.

The single is being released in the run up to their self-titled sophomore album, out on 12th February 2016 also via Jealous Lovers Club and is the follow up to first single Tarts and Darts. You can preorder the album via theJealous Lovers Club Bandcamp page.

Despite the obvious post-rock influences, Right Hand Left Hand are much, much more than an experimental instrumental band. Intense, powerful yet melodic, Right Hand Left Hand defy the confines of one specific genre as they embrace elements of Krautrock, space-rock and electronica, as well as innovatively incorporating live loops and vocals to great effect.

The result is immersive and technically brilliant. Filled with layer upon layer of riffs that subvert the quiet/loud dynamic of post-rock into a loud/louder burst of action. Expertly picked guitar pieces trade punches with meaty riffs, augmented by metronomic drumming, the bands unpredictable nature as the brooding, unnerving track builds slowly.

Despite their unerring ability to sonically pulverise your eardrums, Right Hand Left Hand are in fact a two-piece band. Comprising Andrew Plain (drums/guitars) and Rhodri Viney (guitars/ vocals/ drums) and hailing from Cardiff, Wales, the duo played in a number of Cardiff based bands over the years. Having played a show with one of their former bands in a club in Groningen, Netherlands the pair, having heard Trans Am played by the DJ, were inspired to break out on their own, embracing an experimental set up of two members playing guitar, two drum kits, centered around a loop station, incorporating instrument swaps and all the while attempting to find out how heavy is too heavy.

Their decision to do so was inspired and has seen the band headline Swn Festival as well support the likes ofDead Meadow, Errors, The Mahjonng, The Mae Shi, Future Of The Left, Super Furry Animals, Funeral For A Friend and Los Campesinos.

Seat 18c is out on January 29th 2016 with the self-titled album out February 12th 2016 both via Jealous Lovers Club. You can preordered both via the Jealous Lovers Club bandcamp page.
