Hobart W Fink is indie grunge rock w a disaffected punk aesthetic. With two lead singers, Jayk Gallagher and Lauren Lakis, the band blends touches of The Strokes, Interpol, and Queens of The Stoneage, with such disparate influences as Elliott Smith, Nirvana, and Ben Gibbard in an eclectic stew. Fans have likened HWF's sound to a combination of The X, The B-52's, and Sonic Youth.
The sound is characterized by crystalline vocal harmonies that emerge from gutsy, cutting garage rock. (Noe Santiago on Bass, AJ Brown on Drums.)
Lead single "So Many Losers" debuted on Buzzbands KCSN and KROQ Rodney On The Roq! Buzzbands LA called the video "Smashing!" and The Deli LA called it "hard hitting and fun" -- in the music video, 25 of HWF's friends smash televisions with reckless abandon and mosh their troubles away.
Their debut LP "Back and Forth Forever" -dropping at a residency at Harvard and Stone every Tuesday in August- is recorded and mixed by Chris Kasych (Wavves, Phantogram, Vampire Weekend, Haim, P!nk, Santigold) on a vintage '74 Neve board and mastered by Alex DeYoung (Macy Gray, NOFX, Pennywise).
