David Tosh’s ‘Conversation Between Hands’ Is Love Gone Wild

Hands are part of our human anatomy. Used to grab and hold, it is vital to how we interpret the world we live in. Closing the gap between what we perceive as reality and fantasy. But that’s not the only capabilities they have (no no no). This incredible pair can also be used as means of communication. Whether that’s through gestures (I.e. thumbs up, thumbs down) or sign language for those of us who are hard of hearing. Hands transcend it’s tactile use and transform into mouthpieces to give a voice to the voiceless.

In this same line of thinking albeit in sultry kind of way, comes a song from Canadian Tosh entitled ‘Conversation Between Hands’. Released March 7th via Macintosh Music and available in major streaming platforms everywhere. ‘Conversation Between Hands’ is track that tackles a relationship that heavily leans on touch. How it actually feels to be one that’s dominated by it. As well as the thoughts that race through the brain as skin touches skin – “Choices are not rushed into. Voice is never strained. I’m inclined to say yes to this movement through lion’s gate.”.

To say that this premise isn’t sexy is an utter lie and David Tosh knows that. Thus, he dials up the heat and goes on to paint mental images such as “Conversation between hands is all the meaning. Aqua aventurine get that dopamine in.”. Pretty graphic yes, but not in an explicit way. Rather in a poetically beautiful manner like the wordsmith that he is. In a way, it’s also David Tosh’s way of letting us in as to how the love affair operates in the first place. For the partnership to work, you need to “work for it” or “work it” (wink wink). Here’s a snippet: “Portal opened settled stomach. Humid rain on sunscreen. Humans herd in just like cattle. Capable of anything.”.

With an incendiary message like this, matched with distinct vocals and instrumentals. ‘Conversation Between Hands’ is both alluring and honest. It’s not afraid to show audiences that there are other reasons why people ‘get together’. Love is one, but the need to be touched is also an option. Is it a viable way to live life? That’s up to you to find out and explore much like the experimental techniques implored by David Tosh when creating music.
