Cut Off Your Hands Coming To Bottom Of The Hill

Picture from the HAD Archive

We're still reeling from their ferocious Noise Pop show, so we were psyched to see that Cut Off Your Hands have yet to return to New Zealand. Apparently they've extended their US tour, and will be stopping by Bottom Of The Hill on June 18th.

Since we last saw them, we've been listening to the band's record You & I quite a bit, and really digging into it. It manages a fantastic blend of Spector sonics, Cure-ish vocals, and unrepentant energy. It really is a record that manages to capture a whole bunch of pop sensibilities into one neat package, and come up with something new in the process. Give a listen below.

Tickets are on sale now.
