Handsomebeast are a five piece band comprised of Nick Serena, Jacob Rodriguez, Peewee Ruiz, Carlos Ortiz and Tony Ortiz. Since forming, they have quickly commanded the attention of the Houston music scene, thanks to their volcanic live performances and unique sound described by Houston Free Press as “halfway between good times and sexy late night jams”.
The band aims to make artistically and musically ambitious pop tunes with a distinct rock and roll flair, in the tradition of artists like St. Vincent and David Bowie. This is reflected in all three of their previous albums, including the debut LP, Estilo Gacho, released in January 2014, the Sexy Face Reaction Time EP, released in December 2015 and their sophomore LP The Badass Future, released in December 2016 to acclaim from Houston Press, who noted, “Sexy work, from a band that deserves to be much in demand after this album.”
