Artist Of The Week is FloodHounds!
They deliver tight, rabble-rousing live shows, bursting with startlingly jagged guitar, driving bass and wild rhythmic drums, and with side-swipes of distorted harmonica. Lyrically catchy, the indie rock trio’s powerful punk- and blues-infused tunes stay with you long after the gig.
Listen to their latest single ‘Panic Stations’ here:
This track is a blast of raucous alt-rock, welded together with stomping, fuzzed-up guitars, punk energy and riff-heavy grooves, featuring distorted vocals and a tightly held together back line. Feeling nostalgic yet fresh, it touches lyrically on the theme of remaining unified instead of giving in to panic, alienation and uncertainty, and is sure to get stuck in your head.
With a new line-up and new music, the band recently landed a string of excellent shows, from a rammed Tramlines Fringe set, to curating their own hometown headline show for the opening night of Sensoria Festival, playing Wentworth Festival, returning to Nottingham’s sold-out Bodega to support Kid Kapichi in November. Listen to their previous single ‘Something Primeval’ here:
Pre-lockdown highlights include: being playlisted on BT TV, receiving songwriting awards from Richard Hawley, playing major festivals like Isle Of Wight & Liverpool Sound City, gigs all over the country, and sharing the stage with the likes of The Blinders, Calva Louise, King Nun, Childcare, BlackWaters, and Strange Bones.
