“Fail, Grasp, Restore” is the newest release from UK post-hardcore quartet Chalk Hands. Searching, dexterous guitar riffs slip between sections of thrashy drums and impassioned vocals. The lyrics discuss personal failure and the jumble of both constructive and destructive ways we might interpret it.
This is a mature theme that is expertly rendered over increasingly complex and interesting instrumental motifs. After a turbulent buildup under fervent gang vocals, the closing instrumental is heartbreakingly final.
