Hosannas (formerly Church) will being celebrating the drop of their new album Now and Then - released on Hush Records - this Sunday, May 9th at Mississippi Studios a full two days before its official release.
The band will be sure to please listeners with their off-the-cuff pop musical musings as they pounce forward with their second release. The principle songwriters of the outfit - who also happen to be brothers Brandon and Richard Laws - are cited as growing up listening to the Beach Boys and Kraftwerk. These influences seem to hold true, though do not restrain their songwriting talent.
You can download the track "Happiness" from their new LP here. The track spins a happy keyboard hook around a race track of energized percussion, as the vocals anchor the experience with a core value of pop sensibility.
The show is a meager $6 and starts at 9 p.m. Opening is the mind-bogglingly cool Tu Fawning, and Deli Portland band of the month nominee Ah Holly Fam'ly! What a deal!
