South Yorkshire Grunge outfit Hands Off Gretel release video for their new single “My Size“.

Vocalist Lauren Tate had this to say about their new single:

We had so much fun making the music video to our new single “My Size”! I especially loved the part with the smoke where Sean is swaying comically in my dressing gown with Sam laid out on the floor beneath him, his vape blowing up at him. We couldn’t stop laughing at how amazing our ‘special effects’ were. The video totally suits the song for me. When I wrote it a while ago it was a song about not wanting to grow up, not wanting to box up all your toys and become an adult. It’s about feeling like nobody else gets that. I’d play with my dolls every day when I was younger and I said I’d never stop. It’s about wanting to lock your bedroom door and never come out and be in the real world. The fact I am also giant in the video explains that I did indeed grow up, so I went a little mental and threw the dolls house over, ate my toys and wiped my makeup down my face. Haha! It truly is how I feel all the time. It’s a song about the frustration of getting older… I’m sure a lot of people can relate to that.”

We are going to Wales to record our album on the 31st January so I am super excited about that! I think the world has yet to hear what Hands Off Gretel sounds like. I’ve always felt I’ve wanted more screaming, more craziness that I’ve not yet shown. The album has lots of that and I’m just so eager to get it out there!

If this single is the sign of what is going to come from there new album I for one can’t wait to get my hands on a copy.

Hi I'm Gareth, A foolish Welshman that has found himself living in Scotland. I adore live music and this all started back in University when a friend dragged me along to my first gig and I saw Travis. From then on I spent a lot of time going to see bands from rubbish uni bands that had formed one drunken night to the mighty Blur. When I finished uni there was a 10 year gap between gigs (long story). Now though, on any given day of the week I can be found in the venues of Glasgow. With regards to my music taste I love anything with great lyrics and heavy drums. When I was younger (and still am) I was obsessed with a band called Alisha's Attic.
When not at a gig I will be found at my computer playing games like Prison Architect, Hearthstone and Wolfenstein.
