Hey Anna is a band with a distinct advantage over most: their core members have been playing music together their whole lives. The Rauch-Sasseen sisters (Anna, Erin, and Katie) hail from New Jersey and swap lead vocals and instruments in the band, which is rounded out with drums and lead guitar from two long-time best friends. The result is a mixture of gentle vocal harmonies, solid pop jams, and alt-rock hooks.
Featured Song: “Blackout”
The Hey Anna EP is available now on Bandcamp.
