‘Love On Your Hands’ is taken from Cattle & Cane’s second album ‘Mirrors’ ahead of its release on May 5th. The second album, following from their debut ‘Home’ was produced by Luuk Cox at ICP Studios in Brussels and mastered by Frank Arkwright at Abbey Road Studios in London.
In contrast to the triumphant and euphoric vibe of their current single ‘Fool For You’, the sentimental and reflective album opener ‘Love On Your Hands’ sees Cattle & Cane in a much more reflective mood, with Helen’s heartfelt, emotive and delicate vocals taking centre stage.
Led by siblings Joe and Helen Hammill, Cattle & Cane are very much a family affair, with the line-up being completed by Helen and Joe’s brothers Fran (keyboards) and Vin (bass), along with close friend Tom Chapman on drums.
The analog aesthetic and vintage home movies used in the video perfectly compliment Cattle & Cane’s family dynamic, with film maker Jodie Canwell explaining, “When I first heard the song, I knew it would really lend itself to the Super 8 footage I captured on the band’s last tour. I love the colours you get with 8mm film – I was born in the wrong era!”
“I felt really strange editing this video. It was almost as if I really knew the people in the archive footage. They all look so happy, it made me wonder if life was simpler before everything went so digital,” added Jodie.
