THE COMMUNITY CHEST – lead the way with a good HANDSHAKE
HANDSHAKE – latest track in a series of singles from the Perth band – featuring post production by Andy Ramsay from Stereolab. Handshake was born from a family jam, then planned, mapped and scrapped. Handshake developed into a tour de force production of layered synths and multi-tracked percussion almost unlike any other track the band has produced. Lyrically, Handshake uses the electronic “handshake” generated by early computerised communication systems as a metaphor for fleeting relationships, once close, now separated.
The Community Chest are a synth-driven indie rock/ avant-pop band from Australia formed in 2011. Their last two singles “Reflections Through Corrugations” (2019) and “In My Dreams” (2020) placed 71 and 24 respectively in the top 100 most played songs on RTRFM. Western Oz radio placed “In My Dreams” at No.1 for 2020.” What will a three and a half minute “Handshake” accomplish?
