Hands Like Houses’ Trenton Woodley On The New “Space” Single, Non-Musical Life & More

Formed over a decade ago in Canberra, Australia, Hands Like Houses released its debut album — Ground Dweller, which charted on multiple Billboard charts — in 2012. Further success continued with each follow-up album, most recently with 2018’s Anon, as released by Hopeless Records in the States. The latest release from Hands Like Houses is the new single “Space,” which legendary Australian radio station Triple J premiered last month and has a music video directed by Rhys Graham.

Hands Like Houses — as comprised of frontman Trenton Woodley, guitarists Matt Cooper and Alexander Pearson, bassist Joel Tyrrell and drummer Matt Parkitny — has not slowed down in the midst of the current COVID-19 pandemic. To learn more about this, I had the pleasure of speaking with Woodley via Zoom on July 1, 2020 about the past, present and future on Hands Like Houses. The full interview with the singer is embedded below for your listening and/or viewing pleasure.
