Warp Records The Hundred In The Hands Announce new single 'Pigeons' - watch new video by Warp director Daniels

The Hundred In The Hands:
Announce new single 'Pigeons' - watch new video by Warp director Daniels

 

The next single from The Hundred in the Hands' forthcoming self titled debut album will be 'Pigeons' - you can watch the new video below.

The Hundred In The Hands - Pigeons, directed by Daniels (Warp Films)

 



The single will be released on 12" and digitally Worldwide on 13 September (6 September North America), backed with remixes by Blawan and Walls. The album The Hundred In The Hands will follow a week later.

Talking about the subject of the song and video, The Hundred in the Hands Jason Friedman says of the protagonist:

"When we started making the video the two Daniels asked about the main character in the lyrics and we said:


"She's drifting between weekends with her friends in the city center. There's dirty pigeons wandering around. In the city, even the birds are filthy. She sneaks out the house. She's got a crush and they hook-up but she's doing it more out of boredom and he's doing it because he's a teenage boy. It's like a looped narrative, every weekend, the same thing. She makes mistakes, possibly very, very bad mistakes but she's always in control. She's smarter than most of the people she meets. Up on the roof she looks at the city and the pigeons flying in circles above and wonders why don't they just fly away?"

"What we liked most was how they took our story and went in their own direction so the video almost becomes like new verse to the song… a totally insane magic realist verse."

In the meantime, the band continue their two month run in the UK and Europe - playing Big Chill and Green Man festivals as well as London shows supporting Dum Dum Girls and Jimmy Edgar. So far this Summer they've already played Wireless, Latitude, Tramlines and a spate of UK dates and recently released a remix of Pigeons by Foals.
