I’ve always enjoyed the ambient hardcore of Hands. If you’re a fan as well, check out the progression of Shane Ochsner and the new band, Everything In Slow Motion. The new sound could be likened to Sigur Rós and Listener meet Norma Jean.
Conceptualized by Hands’ front man Shane Ochsner in early 2012, Everything In Slow Motion has now released a limited edition 7″ called Red. Even as a two-song release, Red promises to take the listener on an emotional expedition. Ochsner bares his soul through his lyrics and gives some insight into the new songs here:
After working on “Give Me Rest” for Hands, I realized I wasn’t ready to throw in the towel yet. Spending most of the writing and recording process alone was the most therapeutic way of working through my issues with my faith. And I realized that as human beings, I think it’s our job to be our brothers’ keepers, because even with the tiniest effort, you can drastically change the course of another person’s life.
The song “Red” is the most powerful song I think I have ever written. It was written to try to encourage people to be better. The fact that people can be abused, abandoned, and robbed of ever having unconditional love in their life and still grow up to be some of the most loving and kind-hearted people blows me away. Everyone out there has a story or a road that was traveled to put them exactly where they are today. We live in a broken world, with broken people. But each of us has the power to restore hope within someone else.
