Interview: Tucker Click of Hand Made House Talks New Single “Like the Weather”

By Kirsten Coachman

Following last year’s Honestly, Honesty EP, Hand Made House is soaring into spring with the release of their new single, “Like the Weather.”

With their new single, the L.A.-based band comprised of Tucker Click (lead vocals), Josh Nardine (drums), Maison Thomas-Eudy (guitar/vocals), and Amin Mortada (guitar/vocals) continues to build on their foundation of pop and alternative rock with elements of hip hop. Lyrically, the track cuts deep as Click sings of a complicated relationship that’s taken an emotional toll over melodic beats. Confidently executed from start to spirited finish and catchy to boot, don’t be surprised to find yourself singing along to “Like the Weather” by the song’s final chorus.

Hand Made House was founded in 2016 while the bandmates were attending Berklee College of Music in Boston. In 2018, they released their first EP, How it Ends and Where I’m Going, which featured the single “Through You.” The song made noise across various streaming platforms, where it received over 400,000 streams. The band released several singles throughout 2019 and 2020, including the ever-popular “In Bloom,” “City Girls,” and “That’s Not Love,” prior to releasing their Honestly, Honesty EP last fall. 

Earlier this week, Click graciously took the time to chat with me over the phone about Hand Made House’s tremendous new single, how the band’s creative process changed during the ongoing pandemic, and his hope for the future of live shows.

Megan Thee Stallion aka Tina Snow Returns with “Thot Shit”

Hot Girl Summer is officially in full effect!

After picking up three Grammy awards earlier this year, Megan Thee Stallion is back with her first solo release of 2021, “Thot Shit.” This new single rolls out the red carpet for the return of Megan’s alter ego, Tina Snow.

Both the song and the music video speak to women living their best lives unapologetically. After the year that Megan has had, a celebratory anthem seems absolutely fitting.

“Thot Shit” was produced by LilJuDaBeat and OG Parker. The music video, which you can check out above, was directed by Aube Pierre.

#MusicMonday: Molly Burch – “needy”

In the midst of watching the latest season of Shrill, I heard a familiar song by an unfamiliar voice. A quick Shazam introduced me to Molly Burch, who released her haunting cover of Ariana Grande’s “needy” in 2020.

It hit me in my feels on first listen, and really, it’s a perfectly relatable vibe for when our collective state of languishing gets to be too much.

Charlie Puth Celebrates 4-Year Anniversary of “Attention”

On this day, all the way back in 2017, Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Charlie Puth released his hit single, “Attention,” that would set the stage for what music fans could expect from his criminally underrated sophomore album, Voicenotes.

Yeah, I said it. CRIMINALLY. UNDERRATED.

Charlie took to Twitter today to shout out the song that “changed his life.”

Cheers to “Attention” and its groovy-af bass line!

#MusicMonday: David Archuleta – “Be That For You”

David Archuleta dropped his new single, “Be That For You,” last week, and I already cannot get enough of it!

Here’s what David had to say about his new single on his website:

“It’s been a while since I’ve done a romantic song. We wrote “Be That For You” to be a more light-hearted love song. Wanted it to be vibey and moody yet make you dance. I hope you like it!”

Well…mission: completed. You better believe that I will be dancing it out to “Be That For You” for the foreseeable future!
