Art of Live Festival

at Off Broadway

Hounds is an indie rock group based in St. Louis, Missouri. Known for intricate harmonies and psychedelic tendencies, Hounds is the product of songwriter Jordan Slone (vocals/guitar), Jack McCoy (bass/vocals) and Logan Mohler (drums/vocals). After years performing together as Clockwork, the band has a revised lineup, a renewed focus and an exciting new sound, which is represented in their self-titled debut album, released in Fall 2017. With inspiration from The Beatles, Pink Floyd, and The Doors, Hounds manages to take sonic elements from the past and apply their unique touch, which may be most apparent in their cover of the classic Jefferson Airplane hit, White Rabbit. “We wanted to choose something from the era of music we love the most,” mentioned Slone. “We hadn’t spent a ton of time listening to Jefferson Airplane in the past, so it was easier for us to take this song and make it our own, instead of just poorly copying the ideas from the bands’ original take.” Beyond the release of the album, their most immediate goal is to get back to their first love – performing. “Performing is what we love and what we want to continue doing with our lives,” explained Slone. Our end goal is to be creating something that we love, and we hope other people enjoy it enough to want to see it out in person. Our live show is, and has to remain, something that makes people feel different after they hear what we have done. We want to provide an experience of music for people. Not just put on a show. I’m not interested in just putting on a show.”
