Hosannas

post archive press presskit myspace

Portland, Oregon’s Hosannas have managed to amass a sizable following along the West Coast over the last 3 years with their intense tour ethic and consistent presence in the Portland house show scene. Brothers Brandon and Richard laws grew up listening to Kraftwerk and The Beach Boys. These disparate influences are at the core of the duo’s haunting vocal harmonies, rich verbal imagery and unpredictable guitar. Add to this combination Christof Hendrickson’s Rhodes, Moog and Omnikorg and Lane Barrington’s tasteful, dynamic percussion for an invigorating, original sound.. The band’s influences are as diverse as their instrumentation; comfortable mixing Bollywood samples with tin-foil piano, hushed a capella harmonies, tribal crescendos, and thick, warm, overdriven guitar.
