Anonymous Indie Rockers Quiet Hounds is one part prolific lyricist and melody writer, one part instrumental savant, one part curator of taste, music and culture and one part effortless precision of all things percussive.

Quiet Hounds 'Megaphona' was almost self-created, having been written and recorded in only two weeks time in a modest warehouse, with no blueprint or preconceived notions.

Longing, in style again.
