FloodHounds Short Info

Gloriously guitar-heavy,” British Indie - exploding with raw bluesy fire.
Sheffield 3-piece FloodHounds hit you like a British Black Keys or White Stripes, inspired by the likes of Band of Skulls and Drenge, with just a hint of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. “Raw, plucky, spirited and confident, basically everything you could ever wish for from a young UK breakthrough group,” - Record of the Day.

With live sessions for BBC Introducing Sheffield and Exposed Magazine (http://www.exposedmagazine.co.uk/music/floodhounds-2/) and successful gigs across London and the North, including: Manchester, Derby, Leeds, Huddersfield, Barnsley, and York under their belts, FloodHounds are roaming the UK, playing the kind of music that prompted “It’s All Indie” blog to say; “it might be 10 am on a Sunday morning, but FloodHounds makes me feel like it's 10 pm on a Friday night.”

FloodHounds were picked from 1,200 bands applying via Gigmit for a handful of official slots set aside for unsigned acts at Tramlines 2015 Festival. They were picked for the coveted Saturday night at the Leadmill slot and supported Fat White Family and The Hooton Tennis Club to rave reviews by Sheffield’s own Exposed Magazine; “rock-n-roll flawlessness, accompanied by a cheeky enticing-ness in lyrics... Floodhounds seem a perfect addition to the South Yorkshire sound.” FloodHounds were recently featured as Exposed Magazine's band of the Month for November 2016, and recorded a live session for them at Kelham Island http://www.exposedmagazine.co.uk/music/floodhounds-2/

"A&E", a track from their current 3rd EP "Look What You've Started," , recorded with early Arctic Monkey's producer Alan Smyth, was one of the top indie tracks in BBC Introducings' best 50 tracks of 2016, recently. “A band that is really difficult to have a favourite track of, because they’re all just so good, but A&E by FloodHounds takes up number 16...and well deserved it is too!” Christian Carlisle, BBC Introducing Sheffield said.
"Soulmates to Cellmates" and "End of the Road;" from the same EP, have already been premiered by BBC Introducing and have had great reviews and airplay from Amazing Radio, Radio KC, Indie Rage Radio, Sheffield Live, and a host of others.

FloodHounds' new 3 piece incarnation evolved in late 2014, when founder members Jack Flynn - the vocalist, guitarist and songwriter of the band - and bass player Rhys Owens, were joined by drummer Lauren Greaves. Hear FloodHounds' latest tracks by following on http://bit.ly/SpotifyFloodhounds
