Feeling a bit camera shy


From within the burgeoning Melbourne shoegaze scene, Bloodhounds On My Trail release their debut EP ‘Escape’.

Bloodhounds On My Trail released their debut EP ‘Escape’ on Friday 24 October 2014 at Ding Dong Lounge in Melbourne.

Despite only playing their first show in February 2014, positive reactions to early demos, support slots for notable local acts (including Lowtide, Contrast, White Walls), and encouraging press (being mentioned in Tonedeaf as one of the best Aussie shoegaze acts by Gabe of Lowtide) prompted the band to enter Birdland Studios with engineer Matt Hosking and formally commit their hazy tones to tape.

With a love of shoegaze bands of the late 1980s to early 90s, Bloodhounds On My Trail seek to fuse the rhythmic underpinnings of bands like the Velvet Underground and the Stooges with the dream haze of shoegaze luminaries such as Cocteau Twins and Slowdive.

Old Fools starts ‘Escape’ with thick, hazy guitar fortified by slow, stand-up drumming, followed by the more up-tempo, dream pop-esque of Dreamless. The warmth of the guitar tones are contrasted by an austere vocal on Jolly and the EP is concluded by Silence, It’s Golden, where swirling and wavy guitars are consolidated by a solid rhythm section to swell between verse and chorus.
