02 Feb INTRODUCING: Cold Hands Warm Heart

Sombre atmospheres paired with delicate time signatures. Harpist and vocalist Genevieve Fry, guitarist Travis John, percussionist Esala Liyanage, bassist and vocalist Georgia Harvey and Tokyo-based Yuko Kono on backing vocals and recorder form the Melbourne-based act Cold Hands Warm Heart.

From late 2012, they have created humble and moving pieces via a self titled LP and live recordings. Along with Wondercore Island featuring their track ‘Magnolia‘ on their fifth mixtape, Cold Hands Warm Heart’s limited releases over the years have achieved a lot.

They’ve supported the likes of Luluc and Ainslie Willis at Howler and The Gasometer, as well as playing alongside many Melbourne acts at The Old Bar, The Grace Darling and Shadow Electric.

A diverse sound flows between uncomplicated and tranquil ambient arrangements, around heartwarming harp and into pop, psych, folk and electronic compositions. Each movement is intelligently arranged with individual instruments seamlessly rolling together; constructing an inspiring and incomparable sound.

Cold Hands Warm Heart have a unique approach to a wide range of genres. This, paired with their experience playing live, presents them with an extremely exciting future.
