Various Hands / Press

“Their new EP, Hypoluxo, is a nice break away from conventional song-writing and offers more for the the listener.”

“Everything is clean and precise with this band, tracks are well written and well structured, not to mention the in-tune and on-point vocals. Overall I have nothing to say but good things about this band and album, if I had to sum the album up in just one sentence it would be, ‘One hell of a feel good EP’.”

“Various Hands has a certain happy go lucky aura without all the clichés that makes me want to listen to them more. They really do deliver the goods.”

“Various Hands definitely has their own rock, 'feel good', 'let's party' sound. I am so glad I came across their music; they're absolutely a step above standard level indie rock.”

“Jeff Nations' pop-alt outfit waves at sunny '90s bands such as the Gin Blossoms and Counting Crows while adding tones from the current decade's indie-rock darlings like Band of Horses and encasing it all in a sheath of Incubus-style grime. It's a complicated combination that shouldn't work, but Various Hands pulls it off.”

“An anthemic record of epic proportions, Various Hands' ‘This Party Will Be Fun’ showcases Jeff and the rest of the band’s musical sensibilities. As an indie dance rock unit, they are beyond compare. Various Hands is ready to cement their place on the indie dance rock world.”

“It’s upbeat, anthemic quality is heavy on basic chord progressions and rapid drum beats, simple but refreshing. It’s a bouncy, fun, uncomplicated, and concise release.”

“It’s very well produced, the songs are well written, and they’ve got a feel-good vibe surrounding them that attracts you like a tractor beam in Star Wars.”

“'Blame It On The Night' is an even better number with a nice funky beat that is infectious. The simple groove will have you moving without you even knowing it. The guitars are fabulous while the drums are steady. The vocals melt your ears with great lyrics. This is by far the best from the album thus far. It has everything to make it a star.”

“'Blackout Weekend' is a very strong, melodic song with some great guitar structured riffs which open the song and bellow through the entire mix. This song is a nice anthem for the band off This Party Will Be Fun.. You will find yourself humming along with the singer.”

“The track 'Everything You're Doing (Is Bad)' is the anti-pop brainwash song that the entire population can enjoy.”

“Various Hands produce a pop rock influenced debut E.P. that shows signs of real promise. This Party Will Be Fun. is a hook filled introduction to a band that is defining their sound”

“I enjoyed the songs very much. You guys are total pros. I was impressed to say the least.”

“Slightly sour indie anthems that are impressively optimistic.”

“Various Hands take ’90s alternative buzz and wrap it all up in an upbeat indie bounce that’s reminiscent of the college rock bands of yore, pouring their heart out in the corner of a room luring those who get it to feel the passion.”
