Norwegian producer and singer Curtains Don't Crack unveils the seductive R&B haze of "Hands Off"

10 October 2017, 10:00 | Written by Andrew Hannah

Appearing out of nowhere with a fully-realised vision, the debut single from Curtains Don't Crack is a beauty.

We're not at liberty to tell you any more than "Hands Off" is the first track from a currently anonymous Norwegian singer and producer (whom Best Fit may or may not have covered in the past) who has created every aspect of the track themselves.

Combining Drake-esque R&B with watery Balearic beats, echoing synths and '80s vocoder kitsch, "Hands Off" doesn't mess around when it comes to what CDC wants from a relationship. Within the first few lines, pants and shirt are off, and it's all about making sure this singer gets some explicit self-satisfaction. Looking after number one never sounded so good.

“'Hands Off' came after me just playing around with soundtoys in Logic," CDC tells us. "I knew I wanted to get back to the Daft Punk vibe but mix it with some rhythm and blues chords, as well as the sound being smooth and sultry in an electronic way. It was such a fun experience and I hope people like it. The lyrics basically encircles what it feels like to be the one who doesn’t want to get serious in a relationship but just wants to have fun."

"Hands Off" is out now.
