Crystal Bright & the Silver Hands: Toy Hammer
On the eve of Hallowe’en we bring you some dark humour from North Carolina
North Carolina’s own Crystal Bright & the Silver Hands are gearing up to release their first full length album, which was self-recorded in its entirety by the band, which features former members of Citified and Albina Savoy. The release has already gotten attention from the North Carolina Symphony, who asked permission to collaborate with Crystal Bright to arrange the album’s first single, “Toy Hammer,” for the Symphony’s New Year’s Eve program at Meymandi Concert Hall in Raleigh, NC.
The lyrics and melodies on the debut album portray the world as a dark and strange (and often funny) place deeply connected to fables and imagination. “Toy Hammer” is a fitting match for Halloween weekend. Take a listen and you’ll immediately know why that is.
