Pittsburgh trio Donora have a contagious, glowing charm — perhaps helped along by the fact that guitarist/vocalist Casey Hanner and drummer Jake Hanner are siblings. Their brand of indie-pop is like pure sugar — sweet, delightful and irresistible — but also incredibly creative. With Casey’s pretty and darling girl-group-style vocals set against upbeat grooves and layered synths, Donora present a hybrid of pop from the ‘50s/’60s and today.
Donora’s sophomore album Boyfriends, Girlfriends is out now via Rostrum Records.
