[Listen] The Hundred In The Hands - "Keep It Low"
Brooklyn duo The Hundred In The Hands, consisting of Eleanore Everdell and Jason Friedman, are preparing for the release of their second studio album, titled Red Night, which is set for release on June 11th via Warp Records. In anticipation of the forthcoming release, the compelling duo, with their unique atmospheric sound and wistful vocals, have unveiled the lead single from the album, titled "Keep It Low." The single will be released on May 28th, backed up by remixes from Andy Stott, Pattern, and JD Twitch of Optimo. Listen to or download "Keep It Low" below, and read what Everdell had to say about the remixes accompanying the lead single's release:
We were listening to Andy Stott’s “Passed Me By” and “We Stay Together” EP’s a lot as we started the record. So many good ideas and textures, with low end in the extreme that kind of rattled our minds a bit. When it came to looking for people to remix, he was first on the list. The legendary Optimo duo have been such an influence on so many artists in recent years, and in maybe too many cases we end up liking their versions a bit more than the originals. We just had to ask. JD Twitch turned in two versions, each unique and equally epic. We couldn’t make up our minds so, we stuck them both on. We’d been hearing bits from Patten and got excited. It’s hallucinatory, uneasy and fractured. Pretty much everything we like. “Mountains” was a track that was written totally in the flow of the album but still just couldn’t fit in, it just wouldn’t play nice with the other tracks and just became its own beast of a thing. This seemed like the best place to let it out.”
