Voice and guitar man Barns Courtney is pleased to announce his debut EP, ‘Hands’, a four-track collection that will be released 27th May on Virgin EMI. Along with the announcement comes the first single and EP title track ‘Hands’, following its premier by Huw Stephens’ on BBC Radio 1. The EP is available for pre-order now on iTunes which gives an instant download of the single, and the single is also available to stream on Spotify and digital outlets.
Born in Ipswich, Barns spent most of his childhood living in Seattle before returning to his native UK aged 15. This change of scenery comes across as clearly in his eclectic mix of US blues-rock, hip-hop and grunge with British indie melodic sensibilities, as it does in his hybrid US-British twang.
