Single Serving: Houndmouth Drop 'Otis'

    • Posted by: Josh Ramos

    Alternative country rockers Houndmouth have been building a reputation for their particular brand of rusty Americana folk. In a vein similar to The Lumineers and Mumford and Sons, the music gives off a dancey vibe with sing-along choruses that catch in your throat. This sound is making a massive radio comeback, and could put the Kentucky band, deservedly, on the map.

    "Otis" showcases Houndmouth's southern roots. The gospel inspired organ and reverb-drenched drums create a natural yet holy feel, and the lyrics fit the music. Lead singer Katie howls, "I showed my soul and you saved my soul/I'm on my way, but I need a little time," but the use of multiple vocalists adds layers to the song. It's an emotional ballad that leaves the listener feeling as if they're being exorcised of all negativity, a vibrational cleansing. The music is honest and therapeutic, with a killer guitar riff ripping through the song.

    Listen to "Otis" below, and gear up for their sophomore LP, Little Neon Limelight due March 17th on Rough Trade.
