The Hundred in the Hands

The Hundred in the Hands (often abbreviated as THITH) is an electropop duo, formed in 2008 at Brooklyn, New York, USA, and made up by EleanoreEverdell (vocals, synthesizers) and Jason Friedman (guitars, programming). Named after the phrase the Lakota Nation gave to the Fetterman Battleof 1866 in Wyoming (in which Crazy Horse led his warriors to a victory that resulted in the death of 100 enemies), The Hundred in the Hands fuseselectropop with post-punk and dream pop elements, making for a sound that’s equally danceable and dreamy.

The Hundred in the Hands (often abbreviated as THITH) is an electropop duo, formed in 2008 at Brooklyn, New York, USA, and made up by EleanoreEverdell (vocals, synthesizers) and Jason Friedman (guitars, programming). Named after the phrase the Lakota Nation gave to the Fetterman Battleof 1866 in Wyoming (in which Crazy Horse led his warriors to a victory that resulted in the death of 100 enemies), The Hundred in the Hands fuseselectropop with post-punk and dream pop elements, making for a sound that’s equally danceable and dreamy.

Friedman was once a member of the indie rock outfit The Boggs. In November 2007, following a US tour supporting The Boggs’ third album Forts,Jason Friedman and touring member Eleanore Everdell found themselves in the studio recording a brand new collaborative track without the rest ofthe band. Friedman said: “In the past, the collaborators I worked with would adjust what they did to fit my vision. Working with Eleanore it was clearthat the time had come to shift into a more equal partnership.” In the 10 months since that session, the seven-year-old The Boggs were laid to rest,and The Hundred in the Hands were formed.

The first song completed was “Dressed In Dresden.” In March 2009 the band released the single Dressed In Dresden / Undressed In Dresden on PureGroove label. The online success of this song led in August 2009 to a deal with Warp Records, which Friedman calls “near the top of my list of ideallabels.” Warp issued the 12-inch single Dressed in Dresden in 5 April 2009. « hide
