The Hands of the Wrong People are a Berlin, Germany based guitar, bass and drum 3 piece comprising artist / musicians Pius Fox, Dominic Hislop and Jo Wetzels, originating respectively from Berlin, Scotland and Belgium. With Dominic Hislop as core singer / songwriter, they have existed in various forms since 2002.

“Their sensitive, atmospheric guitar rock owes much to a Scottish indie-pop tradition, but tense, hesitant rhythmic shifts and glints of ’80s post-punk trebly sheen create a distinctive mood based around a limited palette of sounds – intricate guitar lines, irritable basslines and direct, affecting vocals.” – The Skinny

This 11 track album which contains a range of tuneful, noisy and delicate numbers was recorded in Berlin at OnePro Music and Mixed and Mastered by Ron Harrity at Forest City Studio, South Portland, ME, USA.
