The name Portrait People delivers the essence of a beautiful hand painted piece of art. Likewise, the music of the Pittsburgh native four piece, paints a vivid picture for the listener through their raw emotion and striking lyricism. The blend of heavy, hard hitting choruses with melodic math-rock inspired guitar riffs creates a sound of intelligently crafted emo punk. Topping off the sound Portrait People has created is pure vocal quality with a distinctive rasp.
Portrait People’s live performance contains as much authenticity as their passionate lyricism and intense strong structure. With their freshly released EP ” Hollow” and new music on the way, Portrait People’s sound will only continue to shape and progress.
