Single Review - Cut Off Your Hands - Expectations - Noize Makes Enemies

Hailing from the same country as Flight of the Concords, you’d be forgiven for believing that New Zealand laces its water with talent, particularly now with the arrival of Indie four-piece, Cut Off Your Hands.

Singing out the humanist of frustrated emotions; “All these expectations keep on pulling at me” and Cut Off Your Hands grip the listener as vocalist Nick Johnston’s voice fluctuates like a pissed off Robert Smith.

Sounding something like Glasvegas without the Scottish overtones, these vocals perfectly accompany heavy guitars and background chants with all the credible subtlety that the Kaiser Chiefs should have strived for.

With a new album expected for October, Cut Off Your Hands have also been recently supporting Foals on their UK tour and would appear set for similarly big things, albeit with a different demographic.
