Barns Courtney has announced details od his debut EP, ‘Hands’, a four-track collection that will be released 27th May on Virgin EMI.
Along with the announcement comes the first single and EP title track ‘Hands’, following its premier by Huw Stephens’ on BBC Radio 1. You can check the visuals out by scrolling down below.
Born in Ipswich, Barns spent most of his childhood living in Seattle before returning to his native UK aged 15. This change of scenery comes across as clearly in his eclectic mix of US blues-rock, hip-hop and grunge with British indie melodic sensibilities, as it does in his hybrid US-British twang.
Already having supported the Libertines, Ed Sheeran, and The Who, the young troubadour will be bringing his ecstatic one-man guitar assault to further UK and European live dates this spring and summer, including being confirmed for BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Exeter.
