Record Review: Invisible Hand

Invisible Hand
Invisible Hand
Charlottesville, VA

“A year’s worth of emotion, a year in the making”

Indie rock group Invisible Hand, the one-time side project of Adam Smith, has been touring for the past few years and has grown to include bassist Thomas Dean, drummer Adam Brock, and guitarist Jon Bray. Highly revered and often considered the best group to come out of Charlottesville, VA in a while, Invisible Hand has released their debut album, a self-titled pop rock album with punk undertones.

The album opens with “Two Chords,” a love song in which you can hear the sincerity and longing in Smith’s voice. The album continues to feature his angsty, heartfelt lyrics, such as on “Four Seasons,” where Smith croons, “You’re my reason for the seasons.”
The music sound full and lush, often showcasing orchestral talent from the Charlottesville area. For the most part, the record is upbeat, but is juxtaposed by feelings of yearning (“I Want to Win”) and anxiety (“Don’t Wait For Your Third Eye”). (Funny/Not Funny)

Recorded at White Star Sound, Louisa, VA // Produced by Chris Keup, Stewart Myers and Invisible Hand // Mixed by Stewart Myers // Mastered by Fred Kevorkian
