"A breath of fresh air to the music industry, they’ve built their reputation on raw talent and hard work, mixing energy, passion and style" - Louder Than War
"If Gwen Stefani had a baby with Nirvana, it might’ve turned out like Hands Off Gretel. Which, if this is any indication, is basically a very good thing" . Classic Rock Magazine
"Hands Off Gretel drink deep from the well of 90’s grunge. A riotous tangle of bubblegum riffs and rebel girl swagger" - Planet Rock Magazine
“Energy, chaos, nihilism and debauchery abound, a trip with Hands Off Gretel will leave you spent. A beautifully polished ballet of chaos, costume and drama presenting lyrics that echoes the angst and vulnerability of growing up in 21st century Britain.” - Northern Exposure
Hands Off Gretel have played over 150 shows, performed at major festivals, including Download, Isle of Wight, Rebellion, Camden Rocks Festival and headlined Loud Women Festival in London. They made the shortlist of our #MAH2018 unsigned band competition but unfortunately had to pull out due to other commitments so we made it our mission to make sure they could grace us with their captivating presence at Lindisfarne Festival 2019.
