Led by acclaimed drummer Brad Elvis and vocalist/rhythm guitarist Chloe F. Orwell, Chicago's The Handcuffs explore broad sonic territory while believing in the power of a great radio hook. Inhabiting some of the same musical domain as T-Rex, Ting Tings & early Blondie, The Handcuffs deliver bold, sexy songs with memorable melodies and unexpected twists. Known as much for their dynamic live shows as for being prolific writers and producers, their songs have been featured in dozens of films and television shows on Showtime, the CW, NBC, Showtime, MTV, VH1, PBS, HBO, A&E, Fuse, E! and more. The band has released three full-length albums (the newest "Waiting for the Robot," the second "Electroluv" and the debut "Model for a Revolution") and is currently working on the fourth. “The Handcuffs are one of the few bands capable of effectively combining the spontaneity and musicianship of glam/punk with the urgency and rough-edged sound of garage rock,” says New Jersey-based rock critic Phil Rainone. “There's a sexy, swaggering street vibe throughout,” adds North Carolina-based critic Bill Kopp, and the Chicago Sun-Times exclaims that The Handcuffs are simply "effervescent." Completing The Handcuffs powerhouse garge-glam lineup are bassist Emily Togni, guitarist Ellis Clark and keyboardist Alison Hinderliter.
