The Hendersons are a sunshine pop band with tinges of psychedelia. Bright, jangly guitars, three-part vocal harmonies, enthusiastic auxiliary percussion, and melodic bass lines characterize most of the songs.

Biography

The Hendersons are a pop quintet from Fort Worth, TX. Originally formed in 2010 as a recording duo, we expanded to a full-band format in the spring of 2011. Initially our music was thoroughly psychedelic, drawing influence The 13th Floor Elevators and The Rolling Stones. More recently, however, we have set aside psychedelia in favor of a more song-oriented narrative style. Our first record, Lotosyros, was the subject of a feature in the Fort Worth Weekly. The Weekly has described our music as thus: "Throwing back to the Summer of Love, The Hendersons match their good-natured humor with some seriously tough chops, producing a particular brand of music that retains all of the best elements of the '60s without sounding slavish to the era's finest purveyors of the sound." In 2011, we won the 'Best Psychedelic' category in the Fort Worth Weekly Music Awards. All five members contribute backing vocals.
