HOUND release Debut Album ‘Dying in the Sun’ (Soundcloud Stream)

Hound
Despite the obvious ties to the Brisbane climate, ‘Dying in the Sun’ takes a little more of an existential route than the literal “dying in the sun” that you go through every summer in lovely Brisbane. The songs touch on some lightly nihilistic tendencies whilst attempting to steer clear of preachy, political manifestos. Although the final track, ‘Fair Shake’, touches on some quasi-political themes, lyrically Hound prefer to tap into ideas that can be connected with on a personable level. ‘God is Calling’, ‘Something Else’, and ‘Gamekeeper’ are good examples of this. A song like ‘Concrete’ on the other hand indulges in a stronger and more positive theme.

Track 2: Gamekeeper

The four members got to the point of being happy with the tracks, so they acquired local legend/tone king Sean Cook (Plutonium Studios) who hit record as Hound played around with as many pedals as they could find. What they ended up with are 10 songs that encapsulate a time in their lives that was equally exciting, crushing and dynamic.
