Handsomebeast — yes, one word — is a five piece band based out of Houston, TX. They are the founders of an irresistible genre dubbed by the pioneers themselves as space-rock-bump-n-grind, which incorporates elements of classic and indie rock with futuristic electrofunk and infectious pop. Handsomebeast’s volcanic live performances quickly commanded the attention of the Houston music scene as they have become one of the hottest bands in the city. With one EP (2015’s Sexy Face Reaction Time) and one album (2014’s Estilo Gacho) out, and another album on the way for 2016, Handsomebeast is poised to take the nation by storm.
Originally formed as a studio project, producer/songwriter Jordan Moser captures the nostalgia of the '80s with Tyger. Synth and guitar lines intertwine to create memorable melodies behind Morissey-esque vocals.
Since releasing the self-titled EP in March 2015, he added drummer Tom Cordell (Cold Blood Club, Ula Ruth) and electric violinist Hilary Davis (Cold Blood Club) to create a dynamic live sound.
