Making a more than welcome return Mammal Hands gift us with two new tracks both taken from their forthcoming album ‘Captured Spirits’.
Watch the visual for the Homers Odyssey inspired album opener ‘Ithaca’ above and listen to the closing track Little One below.
Mammal Hands is made up of Nick Smart piano, Jesse Barrett drums and tabla, and Jordan Smart saxophones.
Speaking of the writing process, Nick explains ‘Ithaca’. “The piano part was something I used to play in soundchecks on tour, and we would jam about with, but it really came into its own when Jordan started learning bass clarinet, and the two seemed to match together nicely.” ‘Little One’ has a more personal tone to it further explained by Nick:
“This was the first tune we wrote for the album that came around not long after Jesse’s daughter was born. The title was meant as a little dedication to her, and it’s supposed to be a super calm and sparkly tune to finish off the album.”
‘Captured Spirits’ follows their 2017 LP, Shadow Work.
