TRACK REVIEW: Los Campesinos! – “By Your Hand”

los campesinos by your hand

Written for DIY

Los Campesinos! have come a long way since they burst onto the scene with their excitable indie-pop four years back; they’ve grown up, too. “By Your Hand” previews forthcoming “break-up” album Hello Sadness, and as such contrasts some good ole’ fashioned Campesinos! group singing and warm, fuzzy synths from with a decidedly less giddy tempo as may be expected, and candidly raunchy lyrics by singer Gareth, delivering a narrative that’s no so much twee as it is Confessions of an Indie Frontman. Recognisably Campesinos!, but a heartening progression from their roots.
