One of Manchester’s best kept secrets; funk rockers See Thru Hands are ready to take on the world.
Formed from the ashes of Silverclub, Sirconical and The Pipettes, the 6-piece dance floor fillers have been making waves in their hometown, with their catchy blend of synthpop and funk.
Recent props came from local heroes Everything Everything, who handpicked the band to play at the latest Off The Record festival late last year.
Take a listen to See Thru Hands’ single Hot City below, to hear for yourself why plenty are tipping them for greatness:
See Thru Hands will make their London debut this summer, with a one-off gig at Hackney’s beloved Paper Dress Vintage on Tuesday 13 August 2019.
Ahead of the gig, we asked each member to pick out one of their favourite tunes to listen to on the road, and tell us a bit about them.
Here’s what they came back with.
Prophet – You Really Turn Me On
“Lo-Fi synth-funk HEAT. Dude rocks some serious threads too. Mega”. – Duncan E. Jones (Vox/ Guitar)
Gloria Taylor – Brother Less Than A Man
“Gloria Ann Taylor is probably best known for her raw, powerful and soulful voice, but it’s the deep groove on Brother Less Than a Man (B Side to Love is a Hurtin Thing) that gets me every time I hear it”. – Rebecca Pickles – (Vox)
Easy Going – A Gay Time Latin Lover
“High strength Italo disco from legendary producer Claudio Simonetti, the man behind Goblin and a host of Italian horror movie soundtracks”. – Danny Webbox AKA Tommy Walker 3 (Bass)

Robson Jorge & Lincoln Olivetti – Jorgea Corisco
“A huge arrangement that will maximise your agility and speed. Some deadly serious horn playing in the house”. – Tommy Villiers (Guitar)
