Chalk Hands are a post rock quartet hailing from Brighton whose passionate and dramatic new video Fail, Grasp, Restore caught my attention.

The track starts spacious and ethereal before its rock groove kicks in. The drums are complex and lively, the guitar riffs echoing and mournful. Passionate, almost screamed vocals join the mix and the post rock vibe is complete. It all builds up to a cinematic climax that will have the hairs on the back of your neck standing on end. Chalk Hands certainly know their art.
Fail, Grasp, Restore is the lead single taken from the band’s debut album Don’t Think About Death, set for release in March next year. You can check out the atmospheric video for it below.
