MEN IN STASIS
THE NEW E.P. FROM THE MIGHTY HANDFUL
Stuck between moments, suspended in time.
Just months after the release of their most recent album, Touchy Subjects, The Mighty Handful release an EP with three brand new songs that grapple with experiences of finding ourselves betwixt and between in processes of change.
The Signal explores both the comfort and suffocation of being held in a state of flux; wanting to break free but rejecting the opportunity to do so.
The Crucible recounts a child’s fascination with a game of snooker. The tension remains unresolved due to a technical failure, which creates a Schrödinger’s Final, where both players have simultaneously lost and won.
The Stand speaks more directly to the context of a relationship, looking to the past and afraid of the future while paralysed by competing and confusing demands.
Once again, The Mighty Handful are proud and privileged to have noted comic book artist Mark Buckingham creating artwork for this release, which allows us to see ‘Mr. Handful’, who debuted on the cover of Touchy Subjects, from a very different yet equally striking perspective.
Confounding choices to be made, inaction embraced, resolution that may never come.
