Female-fronted alternative rock/new-wave grunge band, Hands Off Gretel, will make their way to the North East this month as they prepare to play the illustrious The Globe in Newcastle.
Fronted by scream-queen Lauren Tate, the South Yorkshire four-piece strut 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 (the aforementioned lead vocalist/guitarist), Becky Baldwin (bass guitar/backing vocals), Sean Bon (lead guitar) and Sam Hobbins (drums). Founding the four-piece at just seventeen, songwriter Lauren is also behind the band’s art design, merchandise, music videos and album art visuals, creating Hands Off Gretel’s unique style aesthetic.
Hands Off Gretel play The Globe, Newcastle on Friday 26th October. Doors open at 19:00 and curfew is 23:00. Tickets are priced at £7.00 on the door.
