Devil Met Contention
Paper Holland didn’t start out the same way as most bands. They didn’t use their parents’ open garage space or half-done basement for years of practice before the big first album. Paper Holland simply skipped that stage and went straight into creating their first album, Happy Belated. Or so they say. They are group that can not even decide their own genre, other than that is some kind of pop. Andy Kosanke (guitar), Joe Tomcheck(vocals/guitar), Ted Powers (drums) and Mark Yencheske (bass) make up the collective. The inspiration for their playful, feel good music comes from anything and everything.”
“While previous comparisons to guitar-centric bands like the Shins are still accurate, the songs on Fast Food also recall acts like Death Cab For Cutie and Vampire Weekend – hooky and melodic with an equal emphasis on rhythm and groove.”
Devil Met Contetion features frontman Ehson Rad, guitarist David Schuyler, bassist Max Nemer, and drummer Nez.
Halfloves are “the best currently active rock band in Iowa” – Iowa Informer. “Halfloves offers an ideal balance of stadium-worthy rock jams and more sober, delicate cuts that allow the occasional respite from its massive moments.” – Substream Magazine
