Watch: Cut Off Your Hands Premiere New Single/Video "Live For Each Other"

Auckland alt-pop/nu wave band Cut Off Your Hands have premiered the video for their new single "Live For Each Other".

The song is taken from their third and final album 'HLLH', out tomorrow (October 16). Get it here.

Speaking about it, frontman Nick Johnston says: ‘Live For Each Other’ It is about self-consciousness within relationships and avoiding the temptation to put a magnifying glass on those I love.”

“The structure was built originally around a sample of ‘Slippery People’ by Talking Heads and was built from there. This is a reference not only to that band but also to one of the first songs I wrote for Shaky Hands ep ‘Takes Slowly Over’- which began life as a cover of ‘Girlfriend Is Better’ also by Talking Heads. If imitation is indeed the highest form of flattery then I think my tendency to chameleon socially around people I love finds fitting expression in a song that wears its musical references firmly on its sleeve.”

Watch the clip below, it was directed by Benjamin Zambo.
