FloodHounds are a fast-paced 3-piece British indie-rock band from Sheffield. Their "gloriously guitar-heavy indie rock”, takes you from British Indie/Rock to raw American Blues and hits you like a British Black Keys or White Stripes, inspired by Band of Skulls.
“Raw, plucky, spirited and confident, basically everything you could ever wish for from a young UK breakthrough group,” Industry newsletter, Record of the Day says.
Reguarly featured by BBC Introducing Sheffield and with a fresh batch of new music and videos under their belts, FloodHounds have been roaming London, with a four gig summer residency at London’s iconic Troubadour, and the North, playing the kind of music that prompted It’s All Indie to say “it might be 10 am on a Sunday morning… but FloodHounds are making me feel like it’s 10pm on a Friday night.”
Following on from winning an offical Tramlines slot to support Fat White Family at the Leadmill, to rave reviews from Sheffield’s own Exposed Magazine; “FloodHounds’ rock n roll flawlessness, accompanied by a cheeky enticingness in lyrics, is a perfect addition to the South Yorkshire Sound,” FloodHounds are stepping up their festival game. Recent appearances include; at Live in Barnsley, London’s 229 The Venue’s Mayday Festival; Oxjam’s Derby/Leeds/Sheffield, Oxfordshire’s Front Row, Stockport’s Blackthorn Festival, & Sheffield’s Outlines, Tramlines, AMP Live and English Rain Takeover Festivals.
The band's new 3-piece incarnation emerged early 2015, when founder members Jack Flynn - the vocalist, guitarist and songwriter of the band - and bass player Rhys Owens, were joined by drummer Lauren Greaves.
