Buckinghamshire four-piece Hounds Haul started out in late 2019, as the brain child of frontman Adam Bosworth. The band have made themselves a name playing in their local area. Their instantly catchy new single Riviera was recorded just before lockdown. The band comment on the track:
We wanted to create an intrinsically up-beat sound to be the background of a lyrically darker overtone, taking inspirations from 80s synthwave such as Depeche Mode and blending it with big indie hooks, the likes of Foals and Bloc Party. Riviera is a place within yourself full of debauchery, but also an idea of paradise.
