Hounds of Hate (London, UK)

London scenesters Hounds of Hate bring new-wave house to the masses.

You can forgive Hounds of Hate for the Kate Bush namedrop, primarily because the eerie sex music breaks away from any take-the-money-and-run sound. Instead replaced with innocent, clean deconstructed new-wave house grooves. Here Hounds of Hate hide behind their moustache to provide us with short guarded responses to our questions…
