Hey folks, check out Melbourne funk-rock 3 piece the Upper Hand at the Armadale this Saturday the 2nd of October, 11pm, with Hydraplane and Responder, as we begin our rock-journey in the local industry.

We have put up our new site, and are in the process of finalising a number of new merchandise. Debut EP will be launched early next year. - Join our mailing list so we can keep you updated, and drop us a line if you want to do some shows together.
The Upper Hand are a 3-piece funk/grunge band with diverse influences and an aim to play high-energy live shows. In their short history, The Hand have received very positive reviews and feedback, as well as appearing on Russ Kellett’s Melbourne on Channel 31, Asylum TV on Channel 31, 97.9FM’s ‘Show us your Indies’ and 88.3FM’s ‘Flying Solo’ with Manda Hug. The bands debut demo EP is available for free at their live shows, and has so far been distributed at an approximate rate of 40 demos per night. In the last month, the Hand were runners up at the Victoria Uni band final receiving a cash grant to be put towards promotion and merchandise.

Together, the Upper Hand is a technical and very experienced outfit, with an aim to move forwards at all times by way of performance, writing and recording. The view towards our music is that it should never be dull, one-dimensional, or basic, and should never be written for the dollar. The band writes together as well as individually, with an aim to always have energy, strong hooks, and powerful lyrics, and to be able to cater to a diverse audience out to party!</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href= >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href= >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>
