21 February 2020

Band: The Futureheads (2000–2013, 2018–present)
Single: Hounds Of Love
B-side: Man Made
Released: 21 February 2005 – 15 years ago today
AlbumSelf-titled debut LP  – released in 2004
Note 1: The song is a cover of Kate Bush’s title track
from her third album – released in 1985 – a song about
being afraid to fall in love, in the song this feeling is
compared to being chased by a pack of hounds
Note 2:When performing the song live the band
sometimes divided up the audience in two halves to sing
the a capella parts of the track which usually brought the
public into a state of euphoria (I experienced it myself once)
Score: The single peaked at #8 on the UK Singles Chart
and was NME’s track of the year

Here we go… Oh Oh Oh
