We’re pleased to announce that Two Hands’ first release is Anomie or Swimming in a Black Sea, the sophomore album for home-recording artist Invisible Elephant.
Anomie… follows 2010’s The Lights Go Out, originally self-released but soon picked up by Sonic Reverie for a CD release after gaining momentum in the blogging community, with favourable reviews¹ continuing to follow.
Both continuing and expanding on the ability to draw from genres as diverse as the instruments used, Anomie or Swimming in a Black Sea takes a more personal journey than that of the other-wordly The Lights Go Out.
In amongst the swirl or reverb, soft but sombre drones and light hearted pop, is a vast array of sounds that effect a continual shift in focus and perspective, recreating through music the sudden disproportionate size, shape and importance everything in the world takes on in the aftermath of heartbreak.

Anomie… will be released on the 15th of August in a strictly limited, handmade hardback-bound book edition, standard edition, and digital download. Pre-orders are available now, and will ship on the 6th of August.
You can visit MySpace for more information about Invisible Elephant. You can also stream or download The Lights Go Out on Bandcamp.
