‘Hands of Man” by Ugly
UK outfit UGLY have shared new single “Hands of Man”. The track was produced at Church Studios by Balázs Altsach, assistant to Paul Epworth who has worked on music for The Last Dinner Party, Wet Leg & Blur. The band will release their debut EP Twice Around The Sun, in 2024.
Speaking on today’s release, the band say “The lyrics weren’t heavily inspired by a narrative in the traditional sense – more a noted feeling of the time, years passing much quicker than you’d like but trying to use them wisely to work on yourself and the way you are to others. We tend to shy away from lyrics that tell an obvious story and rely on themes that evoke a feeling or image, coupled with what feels the most exciting phonetically.”
“The decision to make the final chorus sung in unison by all 4 singers of the band was to create a powerful and united sound which exaggerates the feeling of the song and repetition of the lyrics. This sort of vocal is a styling that Ugly have been exploring in other tracks alongside exploration into harmonically and rhythmically challenging vocals which is slowly becoming the band’s forte.”
Having just wrapped a UK tour with Black Country, New Road, the Cambridge, UK band are gearing up for their own headline show at the 100 Club, coming up soon on the 11th of December. Look out for more from UGLY in 2024.
