FloodHounds’ latest release, ‘Quicksand’, is a darkly melodic, menacing masterpiece that showcases the Yorkshire trio’s penchant for crafting blistering, fuzzed-up indie rock with savage riffs and unforgettable hooks. This sub-three-minute indie rock haymaker is a sonic journey through emotional turbulence and resilience, capturing the essence of life’s unpredictable path.
Frontman Jack Flynn’s gritty vocals take centre stage, guiding listeners through a whirlwind of colossal riffs and sinister melodies. The rhythm section, anchored by drummer Lauren Greaves and bassist Anna Melidone, provides prominent backing vocals, adding depth and dimension to FloodHounds’ sound.
Produced by The Magic Garden Studio, known for their work with influential artists like Kid Kapichi and The Blinders, ‘Quicksand’ is a guitar-driven juggernaut that refuses to hold back. The song’s relentless energy builds to an explosive chorus, where an army of guitars unleashes a wall of sound that’s impossible to resist.
FloodHounds’ previous single, ‘Psychosemantics’, gained acclaim on BBC Introducing and various radio playlists, and ‘Quicksand’ further solidifies their reputation for crafting fuzzed-up indie guitar music. With a track that’s as loud as it is precise, FloodHounds prove their brilliance once again. The band’s live credentials are equally impressive, having performed at renowned festivals and shared stages with top-notch acts. ‘Quicksand’ is a relentless, riff-heavy gem that marks FloodHounds as a force to be reckoned with in the indie rock scene.
