REVIEW: Girl Hands’ Self-titled EP
Artist: Girl Hands
Album: Self-titled EP (LISTEN)
Released: April 4, 2017
Bethlehem’s Girl Hands has released a self-titled EP dripping with ambiance, with tracks that masterfully progress through ideas and emotions.
One particular highlight of the new release, produced at Shards recording studio in South Bethlehem, is the work of vocalist Christina Giacoletti, who does a lovely, haunting job on “Three Weeks,” whose instrumentation screams “autumn” and features an emotionally striking piano bridge. She also shines on EP closer “October,” a melancholy waltz that progresses into a big, sweeping climax to close the effort.
Also capable of hitting a listener in the feels is “Low,” a pensive, sleepy tune that seems to serve as a suitable sonic backdrop for recounting one’s mistakes.
