‘Broken Hands’ is the latest track to be released from Samoans’ forthcoming second album Laika and it’s a song that’s expansive as ever, fully demonstrating the band’s wealth of influences, which range from Radiohead to Nine Inch Nails to Mogwai and Oceansize.
Much of Laika follows a Sci Fi theme, being heavily inspired by the work of renowned Sci Fi writer Philip K. Dick. Laika’s theme developed around the human relationship with space and tales of a dystopian future that reflect who we are and where we’re going as a species. Laika is released on September 29th through Apres Vous Records and can be preodered here.
