Info12”

Limited pressing. 200 copies only for the UK

A six track vinyl single featuring the nocturnal, brooding title track alongside four remixes from the likes of Optimo, Patten and Andy Stott - as well as a brand new track from the band. The 12" is the first release from new album 'Red Night', which underpins a darker, more introspective sound for the band.

The anthemic title track 'Keep It Low' has a driving rhythm that underpins Eleanore Everdell's seductive and wistful vocal turn and Jason Friedman's echoing guitars and spiraling atmospherics, building the song from its melancholy beginning to a fever pitch.

As for the reworks, The Hundred In The Hands chose remixers who've inspired them. The band says of Andy Stott: "We were listening to Andy Stott's 'Passed Me By' and 'We Stay Together' EPs 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."

Of the other remixers: "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."

As well as the four remixes, a previously unreleased The Hundred In The Hands track also features on the release: "'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."
