Yorkshire four-piece Hands Off Gretel have released their new single and video “Kiss Me Girl”. To coincide with the release, the band also have a full UK tour planned for Sept/October, followed by a support tour with the Virginmarys in November.

“We have been off the radar for a few months, but we have a lot of new songs under our belt now and we are just revving the engine ready to go full throttle. “Kiss Me Girl” gives you a flavour of what’s to come! You are going to be hearing a lot more from us over the next few months!”

Founding the band at just seventeen, band songwriter and front woman Lauren is also the force behind the band’s recognizable aesthetic, creating all the bands visuals, merchandise and producing all of the band’s videos to date, including the latest “Kiss Me Girl” video release.
