The Hundred in the Hands is Eleanore Everdell and Jason Friedman. The two live in Brooklyn and discovered their shared sensibility for early hip hop, French house and disco, ska and dub, post-punk, British invasion-mod and girl pop from the 60’s through the 80’s and decided to form a band. Their first song—the post-punk rave-up Dressed in Dresden — was written and recorded in a couple of days, released online, picked up and released as a 45 by a record shop in the U.K. where they were soon playing shows and coming to the attention of Warp Records.
In advance of their self-titled debut album (out on September 20th), they will be releasing their new single Pigeons, a song of classic teenage angst, boredom and pop heartache.

The single is out on September 12th.
