A&E, a track from FloodHounds 3rd EP., Look What You've Started," recorded with early Arctic Monkeys’ producer Alan Smyth, was one of the top BBC Introducing Sheffield’s indie tracks in 2016. “A band that is really difficult to have a favourite track of, because they’re all just so good,” Christian Carlisle, BBC Introducing Sheffield said.
