Toronto, ON-based band, PACKS is set to release their debut LP, take the cake on May 21, and excitement has been building since they announced the release in early March. The album has seen two singles so far in “Silvertongue” and “New TV“, and now they have premiered a video for the newest single, “Two Hands”.
Memorably invoking a “Simpson’s sunset” in its opening lyric, the track delivers a hazy jangle that forms the perfect frame for PACKS leader Madeline Link’s laid back melodic acrobatics, and the accompanying video, which Link directed herself, reflects the song’s springtime feeling.
“This song is quite literal!” Link tells NYLON. “On the walk home with muddy shoes and a light, almost delirious feeling in my chest that only stomping around in the mud can bring, I started humming the tune and the lyrics followed. A walk can transform your outlook on life, whether you are enraptured by a sunset full of colours only imagined in cartoons, you receive a sweet acknowledgement of existence from a stranger, or you get into a yelling match with a raving skeletor.“
