“Their bass heavy organ freak out prog rock demo just made our jaws drop when we hit play. We can't really explain what they sound like but if you imagine Yes in 1969 with Grace Slick on vocals that will get you pretty close.”
“Henbrain arrange dramatic psychedelic rock in a guitarless, two bass, vintage keyboards and drums kind of a way. One bass is fat and round, the other is as dirty as porn. Both have some intricate, intertwined riffing to do. Both songs would doubtless sound like hard rock if they were orchestrated that way, but the temptation is resisted to make one of the basses stand in for a guitar, with the result that the sound this band make is pretty much unique. The material is exciting, and the playing is superb, flowing with total assurance through challenging lines that always end up sounding easy. There’s real drama in this music, thanks especially to the soaring vocals, and a dervish cyclicity that speaks of trance and ritual; this is top-whack malarkey.”
“'While retro-influenced, and a bit prog, these guys are definitely forward-leaning. Maybe, like, outer space forward'”

"If Andy Warhol did a movie on Castlevania the video game, HENBRAIN would do the soundtrack"
"Basses, power landscapes and she-demon vocals"
