What’s this? The latest single from Swedish artist ORKID. This is ‘Hands’.
What’s it like? A deathly atmospheric winter ballad. It features a stark soundscape, with only really a piano for back-up to ORKID’s icy delivery of a dramatically melancholic melody.
Written by? ORKID herself, along with Johan Kronlund (who also produced it) and Kamilla Bayrak.
