The Gorgeous Hands

"Swear to Me (That You'll Stay)"/"Generator"

Formerly the Magnificent Snails, this clever pop quartet finds all the right parts on "Swear to Me." Building a wistful indie-folk backbone with gum-smacking hooks and strategic falsettos, the Hands' instinctive songwriting reinvigorates an overripe paradigm with pure transistor power. "Generator" boasts warm harmonies and an atmospheric build that's only slightly less compelling than the A-side. Expect an auspicious full-length debut in early 2013.
