TRACK OF THE WEEK: RELEASE THE HOUNDS // THE LAFONTAINES

Back for more, Glasgow band The LaFontaines return with fire in Release The Hounds.

Previously pioneering different genres onto one timeless track, this punching cut delves even further with its spin of rap-rock inspired melodies. Frontman Kerr opens atop the bleeding guitar line – instantly releasing that ruthless attitude – before the track unfolds with familiarity as singer Jamie announces the chorus’ hook.

Accompanying, a music video you wouldn’t expect – but also one you would. The band unmask opinions, whether that be political or economic, whilst simultaneously symbolizing the impact of media and PR.

Following the success of debut record, Class, Release The Hounds is a stainless comeback. Dig in below.
