HOUNDS - EP REVIEW

Hounds - Monster, Begin Transmission Part 3 
Hounds - Monster, Begin Transmissions 3

Hounds are four lads with, apparently, glowing eyes and a penchant for intense punk with a 21st century twist. Following on from the likes of Enter Shikari and a pumped up Automatic the quartet open with 'Buy Your Soul' and immediately you notice the rave sized electro beats, the synths and the sneering, Prodigy-esque vocals. 'They Creep At Night' follows up next and it's a deeper groove with more of a dance feel that would work well in dance clubs and rock clubs alike which could be the key to success for these guys as they straddle that alternative line perfectly. The EP finishes up with 'Monster ', a song that features the most furious beats of the three but retains the punk vocal style and the meaty electro melodies. Hounds' scheduled show at Sonisphere in July would appear to be their natural habitat and I'm sure their live performance will be just as intense and energised as the music.
