Swedish duo, Johnossi, makes a bold statement with their new single “Hands” – a politically charged piece that addresses the violence from the police. The track offers perspective from the victim’s and perpetrator’s sides, starting off by emulating the aggression that many encounter when they run into the police. The marching strings and percussions gives a lightness to the hefty subject, giving its listeners space to contemplate and take their time:

The platinum-selling rockers have already snatched numerous awards in Sweden and have already amassed a solid fanbase around the globe. “Hands” is from their upcoming record, Blood Jungle, which will be out on February 17. As of now, Johnossi have tour dates coming up:
