Single Review: Runaway Hounds' 'Sophie'
Wolverhampton indie four-piece have released brand new toxic-love anthem 'Sophie', here's what we thought...
Casting our ears a little further afield, emerging indie rockers Runaway Hounds from Wolverhampton have caught our attention with the release of their emotionally-charged 2nd single 'Sophie' on the 23rd of Feb.
With furiously glimmering riffs and quaking, soulful vocals the track quickly builds up in suspense before the rocking chorus hooks you hard and shakes you to the core.
With its striking lyrics that mark a stern reminder to try not to fall for that rebellious, care-free girl; “Sophie” has a really captivatingly youthful sensibility that is hard to resist and clearly shows the band's influences from the likes of Catfish and the Bottlemen and Peace.
“Sophie’s got a gun, she’ll shoot you right through the heart, and you won’t feel a thing”
Made up of twin brothers, Owen (vocals/guitar) and Kent (lead guitar), Dan (bass) and Callum (drums) the band officially formed and found their distinguished sound in 2016 after experimenting with various genres and sounds throughout their school years.
Quickly outgrowing their local music scene in Wolverhampton with their energetic live shows and well-written indie anthems, Runaway Hounds have quickly gained attention across the UK; which has only continued to grow in momentum since the release of their alluring indie-rock debut track 'Rattlesnakes' last October.
With the band now set to return to the studio to work on more material we can’t wait to see and hear a lot more from this talented four-piece.
