Her Hands, the second video for Jack Ladder & The Dreamlanders album Playmates, features Ladder and actor Hamish Michael (Crownies, The Great Gatsby) playing a game of cat and mouse through the grand 19th century neo-Classical corridors of Sydney Town Hall. Michael is kit out in a dress and Ladder at one point like Avalon era Bryan Ferry. Directed by Steve Rogers who won an Australian Director’s Guild Award for another Jack Ladder video, Cold Feet, Her Hands captures the marble, mahogany and mistrust that helps set the drama of the song.

Jack Ladder & The Dreamlanders. Released November 7, 2014. 1. Come On Back This Way (Ft. Sharon Van Etten) Lyrics.
Three years after the acclaimed 'Hurtsville' and a move from the inner city of Sydney to the Blue Mountains, Jack Ladder returns with his new album 'Playmates'. The album is produced by Kim Moyes of The Presets, and mixed by David Wrench (Jungle, FKA Twigs, Caribou, Seekae). But the elements that remain are Ladder's one of a kind voice, and and ability to draw the listener into his narratives and hold them there, right to the end.
Jack Ladder has been carving out his own spot in the music world for more than 10 years, with four albums under his Aussie belt. Playmates is nothing if not a strong collection of pop songs that, though they would seem at home in the Top 40 of the 1980s, are still interesting and original in the 21st century. If the shameful era of pop music known as the '80s had any influence on Playmates, it came in the form of solid, appealing song structure and catchy musical hooks. What the album lacks in '80s aesthetic are the cheesy, saccharine lyrics and robotically overproduced tones . All in all, Jack Ladder and the Dreamlanders' Playmates is the sort of album you can get lost in. It's full of lush sonic arrangements drenched with robust vocals speaking catchy - but still complex - prose. Next: The 100 Most Anticipated Albums of 2015.
