Led by the vision of Zander Hoschak and the intensely ambitious spirit of the independent rock scene, Reno based hard rockers Split Persona got off to such a blazing start in 2019 and early 2020 that literally only a pandemic had the power to halt their momentum. For a group that formed by accident, they bring a ton of edgy, eclectic sonic energies to the indie rock world – balancing explosive, hard hitting guitar stabs and propulsive drum parts with memorable melodies, catchy hooks and the singer’s emotionally compelling but often coolly abstract lyrics.
