Chalk Hands, double-handedly (pun intended) wipes the slate clean and reinvents screamo. Drawing similarities to Pianos Become The Teeth, Envy, Folly, maybe even a more structured Fear Before The March of Flames, UK’s Chalk Hands strike gold with their EP. Filled with melodic, emotionally settling/unsettling (yes, they do both), clean indie riffs, these four musical geniuses from Brighton are quick to give you an aneurysm with their spastic and drastic changes of instrumental build ups into cataclysmic and passionate gang vocals. For those of you that need to be rattled, let Chalk Hands shake you up a bit. While only two songs, it’s all you need and probably all you can handle.
