Gregory And The Birds (Single)

The Guilty Hands

When the first track Gregory And The Birds started I thought, this sounds a bit Franz Ferdinand and then thought a bit Bloc Party.

But when the vocals kicked in I was pleasantly surprised to hear something a bit different from the norm and then the chorus came and I was bowled over. Add the second track Upsticks with its immense sound and chorus and you can add a new number to The Guilty Hands fan base.

They have fused the instrument sounds so that it doesn’t come over disjointed as many indie bands of today tend to. Also, these are songs you can sing along to, which I found myself doing the next day after only listening to the songs a few times. The maturity of the overall structure and lyrical content hopefully means this band will be around for a long time to come.
