With slight gothic hues lingering in Americana Blues Folk sound, The Bigst Hands’ latest single Catch a Fist is as delectably dark as it is soulfully soothing. Any fans of Kurt Vile will definitely want to delve into the Chicago-born, Brooklyn-based artist’s Delta Blues sound.
The despondently sultry release will stick with you for long after it has faded to a close – especially considering that the track contains one of the most hauntingly cutting Blues guitar solos I’ve potentially ever heard. The Bigst Hands has a way of allowing you to feel like he’s playing the notes on your heartstrings.
The brashly booming drums, phantasmic quivers of the slide guitar and seductive melancholy offered vocally make Catch a Fist and unforgettable track. If Bukowski was still around, I could imagine he’d be an ardent fan of The Bigst Hands and their explorative lyrical style which makes no bones about dissecting the human condition – warts and wall.
