Introducing: Just Handshakes and single "London Bound"
The members of Just Handshakes met at school in Leeds, UK. In April 2012, they released a cassette EP with eight tracks, and they have toured in support of several major acts. Later this year they will release their debut LP, Say It, on California label Bleeding Gold. The first single release from the album is the excellent "London Bound". Featuring clear female vocals, jangly guitars, sparkling keys and driving percussion, it has the unassuming freshness of those C86 tracks that many of us fell in love with, or to, years ago.
"London Bound" is available on February 18. It will be available as a free download. The B-side is a remix of the title track.
