Vampire Hands are a prodigal artifact of the thriving Minneapolis music scene. They’re a whole different breed of shoegazing, moody psychedelia. Not moody like your whiney pre-teen sister but rather like your alcoholic uncle about to drive his car off a bridge, in the best possible sense of the image. Heavily influenced by ’60s psychedelia, their instrumental experimentation – from noise distortion and driving percussion to pure, even sweet vocals[audio:http://insomniaradio.net/audio/dailydose/irdd-vampirehands-poorbird.mp3]
