Fronted by scream-queen Lauren Tate, South Yorkshire four piece Hands Off Gretel make a cheeky, sugar-coated mix of heavy garage rock, grunge, and pop rock influenced by the likes of Nirvana, No Doubt and PJ Harvey. Formed in 2014, Hands Off Gretel features the guttural sound of Lauren Tate (lead vocals, Guitar), Becky Baldwin (Bass guitar, backing vocals), Sean Bon (lead guitar) and Sam Hobbins (Drums). Founding the band at just seventeen, songwriter Lauren is also behind all of the bands merchandise, music videos & artwork design creating a very solid visual for the band in her own vision.
“Energy, chaos, nihilism and debauchery abound, a trip with Hands Off Gretel will leave you spent. A beautifully polished ballet of chaos, costume and drama presenting lyrics that echoes the angst and vulnerability of growing up in 21st century Britain.”
