Brothers Rico and Brandon Laws make music as Hosannas. The emerging psychedelic synth-pop outfit–whose sleek, soul-infused guitar tunes feel right at home alongside their hip-hop and electronic-minded label mates at Fresh Selects–is one of our favorite new bands. Brief traces of acts like Tame Impala, Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Melody’s Echo Chamber make themselves known in the music of this Portland-based duo, but Hosannas never fail to create new and refreshing sounds from these familiar ideas.
Hosannas’ new single “Visions” sounds equal parts nostalgic and hedonistic. It’s a surreal pop effort, full of sexy, sentimental moments and anchored to a locomotive bass line that’s aggressively funky. Bump it below.
The debut album by Hosannas, Picture Him Protecting You, is out July 12 on Fresh Selects. Pre-order the LP here. Stream more singles below.
