“The main theme overall is that you can only go so far to help, but at the end of the day fate is in their hands.”

Most of us should be able to relate to the dilemma Aaron Taos describes in "Hands," the latest off his upcoming EP, GUITS, which is out September 29. As the Brooklyn-based singer explained in an email to The FADER: "it's about wanting to be there for someone emotionally, but for whatever reason them not letting themselves be loved. It's about knowing deep down that something is wrong and this person needs/wants help, but them letting pride or confidence issues get in the way." He also added that "the main theme overall is that you can only go so far to help, but at the end of the day fate is in their hands.”

The song's video—directed by the Tanaka Bros and starring Meryl Streep's daughter Louisa Gummer—brings this to life by highlighting a band of pretty blondes padding through Brooklyn, drinking lots, and eventually ending the night on a rooftop talking it out—sort of. Watch above, cop QUITS EP tomorrow; and if you really want to get into the spirit, you can catch Taos tomorrow at Elvis Guesthouse in Brooklyn at 9 p.m. or at Tell All Your Friends' CMJ Showcase at Elvis Guesthouse on October 14.
