Hound: ‘Holding Out’

With their latest infectious single ‘Holding Out’, Scottish 4-piece Hound craft a heartfelt ode to the comforts of home.

Jangly guitars and propulsive rhythms combine with the band’s youthful energy making the sound their own. As frontman Zack Manson ponders leaving Glasgow behind, his bandmates echo the wistful longing in the melody with their tight musicianship.

Manson’s vocals brim with endearing sincerity as he weighs his ambivalence, singing over chiming riffs influenced by a number of nostalgic bands. Yet the song’s pop-rock exuberance suggests hope lies ahead wherever he lands. After honing the song with exhilarating spontaneity in the studio, Hound have shaped it into an infectious, propulsive earworm.

Hound capture the poignant essence of outgrowing one’s roots while forever being shaped by them.
