Hand From Coffin

‘Hand From Coffin’ - Swimmingpool The Band

More flickering melodies flushed out with feedback and keys. “Hand From Coffin” is named after the single creepiest term of “mutual destruction” ever thought of by the soviets during the cold war. It’s one of the alternate names for their Dead Hand system (which may still be in place).

“Dead Hand (Russian: Система Периметр, Systema Perimetr) (known also as Perimeter, and Hand from Coffin) is purportedly a Cold-War-era nuclear-control system used by the Soviet Union and in use in Russia. An example of fail-deadly deterrence, it purportedly can automatically trigger the launch of the Russian ICBMs if a nuclear strike is detected by seismic, light, radioactivity and overpressure sensors. By most accounts, it is normally switched off and is supposed to be activated during dangerous crises only. “

The song itself is textural, and though moody, not nearly as doom ridden as the title may imply. It’s a play on nostalgic fuzz, growing up right at the end of the cold war and loving halloween (were I younger, I’d find that term not terrifying, but I’d ignore the ramifications and think it was totally spooky and awesome).

Anyway, lots of heavily produced whooshing feedback, guitars and keys. I hope you like it, I really do!
