Two years after their 2018 album -Anon., Hands Like Houses are set to release a new self-titled EP.

The Aussie mob will be sharing the new studio effort on October 23 via UNFD, with new single The Water available to check out now.

"I picture the protagonist as some beautiful, fantastical, strange and surreal sea creature that has come to live among us, but wants to go home," frontman Trenton Woodley explains of the track. "I feel like the voice of this song is one that has done its best to make a place to belong, but knows it doesn’t, can’t or won’t, and is trying to say a heartfelt, honest goodbye.

"Of course, that’s not to say there’s not a piece of me buried in that voice. I don’t think you get to come this far in life without wondering if you really belong to this particular path you’ve found yourself on, if there’s not somewhere else or someone else you’re meant to be. The harder the times, the bigger the question becomes in your mind. When it comes down to it, it’s a song about closing doors and opening new ones."

Hands Like Houses will play Slam Dunk Festival next year – which takes place in Leeds and Hatfield on May 29 and 30, 2021. Tickets are available now.
