We’re glad to announce that Brooklyn, United States-based indie rock band Gigantic Hand have released a new single, entitled “Open Letter.”
“Open Letter” is Gigantic Hand’s latest single, released 12 years after their debut album, Permanent Skin. It’s the first song on Gigantic Hand’s anticipated full-length album, March, to be released next month, and marks the completion of the project begun by Rory O’Connor (drums, synthesizer) and songwriter Kris Kaczor (guitar). Since Gigantic Hand, drummer and synth player Rory O’Connor (Nitemoves) has also gone on to become the drummer for Com Truise and Tycho. Anthony “Rocky” Gallo, a platinum award-winning and many Grammy-nominated engineer, recorded and mastered “Open Letter” as well as Gigantic Hand’s upcoming album.
On March, Gigantic Hand created ten indie rock/pop songs that are simplistic and understandable, yet layered with subtle intensity (think Pixies, Built to Spill, Pavement, Weezer and Modest Mouse). The inspiration behind their single from the album, “Open Letter,” was to make a new, modern anthem like “Where Is My Mind” by the Pixies. The song is catchy, poppy, heavy where it’s appropriate, and familiar; while the lyrics ask people in general whether they are happy with who we have become as a human race.
“Open Letter” immediately draws the listener in with slow, deliberate drums and bass synth notes, while a distorted rhythm guitar soon joins in, its heavy yet catchy chord progression highlighted by ethereal synths and later underscoring the lead electric guitar melody quite well. During “Open Letter”’s thoughtful lyrical passages, the vocal melodies nicely mirror the lead guitar lick as the track gradually builds and intensifies. “Open Letter” is quite an enjoyable listen as well as an impressive return for Gigantic Hand, showcasing their brilliant songwriting and excellent musicianship; I would highly recommend this track to fans of indie rock.
