Glad Hand work in the vein of other Leeds luminaries Adult Jazz, Wild Beasts and Makeness here (the latter actually turns his hands to remix duties on the b-side). ‘Shape Your Fever Close’ has both tenderness and bite to it, with a beautifully androgynous vocal cresting on an oft-discordant, occasionally gorgeous plume of synths. The lack of release as the track moves on recalls a sort of bedroom pop version of Usher’s ‘Climax’. Out on Handsome Dad (The Big Moon, Aldous RH and such like).

Shape Your Fever Close by Glad Hand

8/10 Clinton Staff review, 13 December 2016

Since Hayden Thorpe came a wibbling out of Kendal with his Wild Beasts there have been an alarming number of bands and artists happy to ape his unusual screech. London four piece Glad Hand are another but crucially they marry the falsetto vox with some pretty fascinating sounds. The tune is just right of the dial to your real oddballs such as Adult Jazz using some pretty discordant synth tones and heaps of spiralling percussion. It certainly sounds like they've been listening to Scott Walker, Talk Talk and Thom Yorke and tried to combine them all together. It's full of unusual tension that wanders around without really reaching conclusion but this is a promising start. Overleaf we get 'Been One Thing' which is again eerily discordant with a propulsive repeating guitar tone and wild percussion before it veers in some pretty interesting directions, kind of like when the Dutch Uncles discovered Grizzly Bear. 

It's like if the Wild Beasts got interesting! Truly unusual and innovative music. Couple of remixes too from Makeness and Dan Jacobs.
