I’ve long been intrigued by bands that take experimental chances to create something interesting. It can be hit or miss but when it hits, you know it immediately. Combining different influences and inspirations in music the end result can be pretty damn good. With that in mind, allow me to introduce you to the band of the week, Handle. Hailing from Southern California, this four piece band is just getting started but already have released a killer single with “Spirit Channeler.” Listening to this song you can pick up on bits of their influences like The Mars Volta/At The Drive In, Circa Survive/Saosin, some Glassjaw and a little Thrice. I look forward to what else Handle does. Definitely give them a listen and if you are in the LA area this weekend, get to The Federal in NoHo and see them along with Centershift, Arc Angles and The Tragic Radicals!
