I Don't Wanna Hold Your Hand [Download in High Quality WAV Format]
Coastal Fire Dept.
I Don't Wanna Hold Your Hand is best described as the Beatles meets grunge, this 2 minute song packs a serious punch with catchy lyrics aimed at getting in your head.
Challenged by the band to write a two minute grunge song Ollie wrote alt-rock/grunge inspired ‘I Don’t Wanna Hold Your Hand’ before social distancing became a thing. It is deliberately catchy and deliberately short on lyrical content!
Originally intended as a Nirvana rip off/ tribute song, it immediately sounded like another very inspirational alt-rock/grunge band. Coastal Fire Dept. embraced this sonically and took the song forward in their own way.
Written pre-Covid 19 and before social distancing was a thing, I Don’t Wanna Hold Your Hand has unconsciously become a song with Covid-19 references. The single was recorded and mixed in Guernsey but also saw them work with Fabian Tormin (Biffy Clyro, The Kills, Lee Ranald)
