Houndstooth play The Adelphi on Friday 4th September.
Houndstooth writes electric folk songs that talk about everyday sweetness and desolation in a manner that’s as singular and idiosyncratic as singer Katie Bernstein’s inimitable voice. If their songs were pictures, they’d be William Eggleston photographs – overheard stories in heated-up kodachrome speaking of sweetness and tragedy.
Their debut LP, “Ride Out The Dark,” is a collection of songs that speak to the light at the end of that dark forest tunnel we all find ourselves stuck in now and again. Put it on your turntable and sit with it like a friend; it’s the kind of record that makes you homesick for an un-nameable place and puts you in its own kind of darkness on the edge of town where things are raw and alive and unchained. Their follow-up LP, “No News From Home” is due out in March of 2015.
