Old New York

Washed Hands (Digital Single)

Review by Diane Hill

Old New York have been creating music since 2009. This Australian indie rock act are releasing their third album and “Washed Hands” is both the first song on the album and the first single. It’s quite a strong song that’s works very well.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2016  Volume 3 at lulu.com/strangesound.
Track by Track Review
Washed Hands

This is a lot of fun. I like the way the band uses chord progressions. The singer's voice is smooth and captivating. This song also has some great bass lines. It definitely doesn't have the standard beat. A lot of the vocal hooks are unexpected and make you want to give this a second and third listen just on their strength. Once you get past that point, you’ll probably be hooked. .

 

(Editor's Note - Music Street Journal is set up for the allocation of albums, not singles - particularly not one-song singles. So, in the instances, like this one, where we've covered single song releases, we've had to make some adaptations for formatting. In the case of this one, just imagine both track review and overall review reading as one set of copy. )
