Hands Off Gretel get their skates on in new video ‘I Want The World’

Yorkshire alternative rockers Hands Off Gretel have revealed the video for their next single ‘I Want The World’, taken from their forthcoming album of the same name.

The attitude-oozing video features the band taking over a skatepark, check it out below:

The album is released on March 29th via their own label: Puke Pop Records.  You can pledge to this record and purchase extras by clicking here.

Vocalist Lauren Tate had this to say about the album:

I Want The World is a song about how I’ve always felt since I was young. It’s me pouting like a child and saying ‘no! I want more than what this world is going to give me.’ I channel Veruca Salt from Charlie and The Chocolate Factory when I sing it. I am being obstreperous and impossible like a child, kicking and screaming until I get what I want… It feels like I wrote this album 6 years ago in a school toilet whilst skipping class and hiding from the world,” continues Lauren. “The way I felt so ostracized and alone like I didn’t fit in anywhere. It became my mission to sing for the outcasts, the weird kids, the ones that feel mis-represented in society and left behind like I do. I made it my obligation at 15 to make as much noise as possible as a young woman, to challenge everything.”

The album includes singles ‘SASS’ and ‘Kiss Me Girl’ as well as 10 other new tracks.
