Remote Control Records are thrilled to announce the signing of HANDSOME to Dot Dash Recordings. The announcement comes with the release of a new single and video for ‘Late Night Ball Game feat. Joyride’, lifted from an EP, No Hat No Play, coming early 2018. Watch the clip below!
Sydney-based HANDSOME crafts a mix of tomboy pop and brooding electronica. The new sounds herald a celebration of self-expression and carefree creativity, whilst still being accompanied by obsessive perfection. The name HANDSOME is a nod to her queer identity and is inspired by her strong friendships, falling in love, kissing girls and rolling your eyes at people who have opinions on who you should be. HANDSOME is a statement of defiance.
Crafting music mostly in home studios around NSW, HANDSOME has a knack for the DIY. Working with artists and writers with strong pop sensibilities and then taking the songs into their final chapters. Collaborations with artists such as Joyride, Jonny Took (DMA’s), Benjamin Fletcher and David Hunt, Jayteehazard and more, have given the project its first start – with many more collaborations to come.
HANDSOME shares: “A little over a year and a half ago, Joyride and I pieced this song together. ‘Late Night Ball Game’ is a song that is so close to my heart because it so captures what it is like to be stuck in your own head when you’re deeply worried about having to reveal a secret to someone you love. It follows the story of a person coming out to their friends, their family, their loved ones. A story that often reflects turmoil, and hurt and pain. Why do we instil fear in our young ones who are simply wanting to reveal who they truly are?“
