London label Hand In Hive to celebrate Five Years with free-entry showcase

10 July 2019, 11:23 | Written by The Line of Best Fit

London-based indie Hand In Hive turn five this year and to celebrate, they're throwing a special free-entry party at Kings Cross venue The Lexington on November 21 in association with The Line Of Best Fit and CALM.

The show features three bands from the Hand In Hive family: drawing on Real Estate and Teenage Fanclub, Swimming Tapes bring their blissful brand of nostalgic indie-pop; Wyldest deliver dreamy shoegaze for fans of Beach House and Cocteau Twins; Saltwater Sun's raucous rock n' roll will get the party started.

Entry is free with a £3 minimum charity donation to CALM on the door. Grab tickets now via DICE.

Meanwhile, headliners Swimming Tapes released a new video yesterday lifted from their excellent debut album Morningside. Louis Price of Swimming Tapes shared: “'Keep Her Closer' is a song I wrote after finding out a very young love got married. Her house had an amazing garden and I remembered all the times we went out at dusk and ran through it to the fields behind her house, escaping our parents. I just wrote it as an ode to her and in the hope that she’s happy and enjoying life."

Free tickets for Hand in 5ive are available now. Listen to Swimming Tapes' Morningside here.
