Katy Kirby - 'Hand To Hand'

Ahead of her forthcoming new album Blue Raspberry, due out on January 26th, 2024 through ANTI- Records, Katy Kirby has returned with her fabulous new single Hand To Hand. With expansive instrumentation, the track truly showcases Kirby's pristine vocal talent as plinky guitars and soft percussion slowly become roused. "I wrote this at a moment I was witnessing the gory breakdown of several relationships/couples all at the same time,” Kirby explains. “I don’t really want to invoke the word 'heteropessimism' here, but I guess it’s about something like it, or just about commitment in general. It all seems like such an incredibly risky idea? I’m feeling less dark about it these days but I also fell in love with someone recently, so have tried to think about it less." The new single comes accompanied by a lyric video of Kirby creating a wedding make-up tutorial when the theme of your wedding is “getting ready to make a bad decision.” Take a watch for yourselves below.
