Hands & Bits - Lovesongs for a Broken Pencil (UNIT RECORDS 2017)



The Austrian electronic-,acoustic-duo formation Hands & Bits dedi- cated their debut album to everyday rituals - loops - , sometimes interrupted by unpredictable situations like the demolition of a pencil tip or even the death of an individual.

Musically starting with simplicity, followed by extended romantic scenery up to the complete resolution of matter - white noise - thats the sound structure of „Lovesongs for a broken pencil“. Me- taphoric thoughts are predicted.
