Acoustic Minds / Press

“[PORTLAND POP] Portland twin sirens Amanda and Jenni Price, known together as Acoustic Minds, specialize in their own blend of soul and New Millennium dance pop. Their work has two completely different, though not necessarily opposing, sides: a quiet, acoustic side rife with gorgeous blues and soul influences and a loud, club-banging side that is rich in synths and lyrics about the type of love at first sight that can happen only on the dance floor. Citing such influences as Rihanna and Katy B, the band is crossing over more fully to the latter\'s side; its new album, Electric Sol, sports synthy club jams fit to get a little sauced and make out with a rando to. ”

“Two of Portland’s hardest working musicians known for their live performances and unmatchable harmonies, 32 year-old twins Amanda and Jenni Price of Acoustic Minds get ready to release their second album in less than a year, “Live from the Living Room” this Saturday, January 8th at the Alberta Rose Theatre, and it’s like nothing you’ve heard from them before.”

“It's a compliment to Acoustic Minds to say that their new album, "Live From the Living Room," doesn't really sound like a live recording. The between-song banter and audience response are missing, and the performances are studio-perfect -- but it still retains the warmth and energy usually only seen and felt on stage. ”

“Jenni and Amanda Price are sisters, twins in fact. One can only imagine that it is the closely shared DNA that accounts for the flawless melding of their beautiful voices. Each alone is a fascinating talent, able to invoke folk, blues, soul and any number of genres. But together they titillate every one of the senses. ”
