Open Hand: Cool

You know we like our genre-bleeders here at Insomnia Radio. Here’s one that just graced our inbox from Southern California:

Open Hand is your typical modern alt/rock band with stony guitars and a heavy beat. But you can expect to hear playful female vocals, pounding German melodies, and a dollop of rap for good measure in “Honey.” (Out April 2010, we’ll keep you posted.)

They produce progressive music with a wide range of talented artists, collaborating with Matt Talbot from the Illinois rock band Hum and Christopher “Kid” Reid of the hip-hop sensation Kid n’ Play.

This album opens up a market beyond the “rock” genre and promises to deliver an eclectic range of voices and structure. [From Official Bio]
