TUNE FloodHounds - Something Primeval
‘Something Primeval’ bursts into life with a striking assault of bass and drums, sandwiched between deep chugging rhythmic guitars. A dark mysterious verse section follows before a cutting into a fuzz driven, swaggering anthemic chorus that has been igniting crowds into passionate choirs at gigs across the UK. “The song looks at our deeply buried primeval instincts, and whether we should trust them more, keeping our eyes on the prize, surviving and coming together to solve our problems. It’s great fun to play live, it’s heavy but catchy, so people seem to really get on board with it and get stuck in,” says songwriter Jack Flynn.
‘Something Primeval’ follows FloodHounds last single ‘Out Of Time,’ which was released December 2019. BBC Introducing described the track as “magnificent” as they named it Record Of The Week and featured in the Top 50 tracks of 2019. ‘Something Primeval’ is the second of two new tracks the band crowdfunded for to record, with producer Thomas Mitchener, at Broadfields Studios in Watford. Mitch produced Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes’ first two albums, as well as singles for Strange Bones, BlackWaters, Wargasm, Sheafs & Kid Kapichi.
“Mitch is producing all of our favourite bands at the moment and his style really resonated with our own ideas” says drummer Lauren Greaves. Bassist Joel Hughes adds “It was fun working with Mitch and experimenting, hiding some mad sounds just under the surface, like this electro-magnet thing called an e-bow that vibrates the string to make these wicked endless guitar drone sounds, and some nasty low octave piano keys thundering away in the depths”
