Talking with Hands

Talking With Hands is the primary creative vehicle of the Nashville, Tennessee born songwriter, Matthew Thomas Smith. Equally inspired by the pop sensibility and clever wordplay of XTC and the ethereal styles of Air and My Bloody Valentine, Talking With Hands blend intelligent song craft and mesmerizing atmospherics into a sort of pop-art that aims to change the way people think and feel about music. Talking With Hands began in early 2007 as an outlet for Smith to reflect on his experiences living and studying language in Tokyo and Seoul and quickly grew into more of a musical diary.
