Late last month, LA quartet Hands released Synesthesia on Kill Rock Stars, and they just sent us in their video for "Brave Motion." The animated video was directed and animated by Johnny Woods (with help from Ricky Calvit Jonsson Jr.). There's an unfiltered sense of kinetic energy that grounds "Brave Motion," (and the other nine tracks on Synesthesia), which finds a perfect counterpoint in the blown out colors and motion trails on display in this fantastic video.
You can order Synesthesia by clicking right here, and if you live in the United States you can check the band out on tour this summer. We recommend that you stop whatever you're doing and book a ticket.
