As gray December skies surround us and we get carried away in the hustle and bustle of the holidays, I think it’s safe to say that we all need a little time to step back and refresh. As much as we love gift shopping, endless peppermint lattes, and picking out the perfect sparkly dress for all those holiday parties sometimes we just need a moment to slow down… and there is no better way to get re-energized during this chilly month than with some new music.
Let me introduce you to The Hundred in the Hands. They are an indie/electronic band from Brooklyn made up of Eleanore Everdell and Jason Friedman who come together to create the dreamiest soundwaves… and I promise that this will be love at first listen.
Their sound combines a mix of synth and dream pop with post-punk and soothing vocals that give rise to the most relaxing of vibes. It’s easy to get lost musing with these melodies softly playing in the background, and sometimes that’s exactly what we need. One of our favorite things about The Hundred in the Hands is that they are truly passionate about their art and are constantly creating. While they are currently working on putting out an EP in 2015, they have also been busy working on a project called New Ancestors.
New Ancestors is a record label, journal, and a union of artists, creators, writers, designers and labels from LA, Brooklyn, and Berlin with a common interest in the culture and community involved in their art.They are focused on artist-to-artist relationships and write about everything from modern geometric art to the adaptation of music to the dysfunction of modular youth. The words and music of New Ancestors and The Hundred in the Hands are thought-provoking, powerful, and definitely something worth discovering.
