Sands has been around music his entire life.
A multi-instrumentalist who draws on the full spectrum of pop, he seems able to handle everything from placid melody to ferociously avant garde ideals.
New track 'Poison In You' finds the rising artist drawing together these various strands, these often contradictory impulses.
Recorded alongside Brett Shaw at 123 Studios, 'Poison In You' is dark but contains an epic chorus, with the crunching guitars set against some delicate beats.
Finely poised, it's due to be released on March 3rd and is available on pre-order now here, in the meantime you can check it out up-front on Clash.
