Track: Bloodhound – A Message

Bloodhound released their debut album ‘Fragile Skeleton’, a couple of years ago which earned them a heap of fans. Now the band have returned with their new single ‘A Message’. A song about completely shutting down and being enclosed in your own mind. About considering nothing but your own thoughts. About pushing people away but not knowing why.

“Interpol was our main influence,”

explain the band.

“We wanted a jarring guitar line that sat underneath a dark, despondent melody and an atmosphere that consumes the listener. The chords for the chorus came from a demo written about four years ago. Max wanted to throw the song away, but Bex convinced him to keep the chorus and recycle it into what became A Message.”

Expanding further, they add,

“Most of the song was written before the first album came out, so we felt it was ideal to be the first release back after two years away. It’s short and to the point with plenty of melancholy and a hard-hitting chorus. It’s been a hell of a long journey to get here, we’ve been through thick and thin over the last two years – loss, setbacks, arguments, break ups, turmoil – so there’s a lot for us to let out. It’s the most explosive way for us to return.”

A doomsday sounding track of epic proportions with mournful guitars and depressive vocals yet the track has a hope-filled vibe to it. Especially on the chorus where the track becomes alive with vocal harmonies and a wall of guitar noise. You have to hand it to the band this is one hell of a track after only a handful of releases.
