The Colonies – “Her Hands Are So Cold”


Washington, D.C. indie-rock act The Colonies impress again with “Her Hands Are So Cold”, released this summer alongside the previously featured “Bound to Be Something Good“. This track’s “queen of the summer,” hook – warm and fluttering – warrants posting before the summer weather subsides for good. This anthemic ode to a special sort of presence channels a sort of endearing, summer-love sound — with a touch of surf-rock in the guitar tone, with the hook-y power-pop demeanor persisting in the “hands are so cold,” chorus.

“”Her Hands Are So Cold” is a song written last summer about getting over an ex and meeting the “queen of the summer”, it’s ironic that her hands are so cold,” explains The Colonies’ Pete Stevens.
