2011: Faces of 2011 – Hired Hands

If intricate indie-pop is your thing, then look no further than Galway and Dublin’s Hired Hands. Signed to Any Other City Records which of course, released Villagers early material as well as New Amusement, Hired Hands revel in the sounds of folk, a touch of jazz, melodies like nursery rhymes and playground times with waltzing rhythms.

All packaged up with distinctly Irish voices combined in Dirty Projectors-esque harmonies.

Hired Hands play Whelan’s Ones To Watch 2011 on Friday.
