Hudson K / Press

“Local piano/chamber-pop diva Christina Horn, the driving force behind the band Hudson K, stakes out new territory on the new song “The Knife,” an atmospheric, electronic-pop anthem with anxious, insistent rhythms, styled, maybe, after the Eurythmics or Peter Gabriel. It’s part of a batch of songs Horn is working on for the follow-up to 2010’s Shine. “We’ve got some songs in the works,” she says. “This is the first single, and it kind of shows the different direction we’re headed in.””

“Hudson K is the real deal, a band with influences galore but a sound that is their own, a rare quality in this day of the doppelgangers haunting the charts and airwaves. “Shine” is regional act Radiohead, brilliance with a ten-buck cover. Hudson K has knocked one out of the park with this one;”

“Hudson K Shines on Debut Album By (Contact) Wednesday, July 7, 2010 Hudson K’s previous release and much-revered live performances have earned frontwoman Christina Horn and her towering yet delicate vocals comparisons to modern artists such as Bat for Lashes as well as songstresses such as Tori Amos. But on its first full album, Shine, the group—Horn, Jeff Christmas, and Nate Barrett—finally manages to clearly showcase the entire band’s sophisticated compositions and performing chops, as opposed to just highlighting Horn’s songwriting and impressive vocal range. Shine opens with “Fade,” which quickly establishes the album’s generally upbeat and full-bodied tone with an explosion of synthesizers and Horn’s trademark piano stylings. If Shine is any sign of what Hudson K has in store for its fans, it is almost certain that there are many more surprises to come—not only from Horn, but from the group as a whole. (Carey Hodges) ”

“On Hudson K’s latest release, Shine: “Talk about an album that will get inside your head. Christina Horn may not be the first woman to pound on a piano while forcefully delivering confrontational lyrics in a hauntingly beautiful voice, but she definitely does it her own way. Really. These ten songs sound like little else, and make no mistake: that's a compliment.” ”
