Recorded in an isolated cabin on the Potomac River in West Virginia, “Show Me Your Hand” is the latest track from Greg Hatem. Inspired by The Hermit tarot card, the release presents a rhythmically active, psych-forward sound touting a consuming, textural pull. Per the Baltimore-based artist, the track is “about loving someone who is holding their cards a little too close to their chest.” Despite spanning slightly over two minutes, there is an ample atmospheric imprint. Synth flourishes at 01:25 add hauntingly to the murky rhythms and distant vocals. Throughout is a sound that masterfully blends hypnotic soundscapes with stimulating, moving rhythms. I’m definitely looking forward to hearing more from Greg Hatem.
