In late 2011, Matt Myers, Zak Appleby, and Shane Cody started playing music together in a historic home in New Albany, Indiana, dubbed “The Green House.” Its rooms were adorned with relics from times past, so it was no surprise that songs such as “Penitentiary” bounced off the walls. Nostalgic sounds from their first album seemed to serve as a welcome escape for listeners from the relentless demands of the digital age. But if you asked any of the guys, they were ‘just having fun.’
Houndmouth signed with legendary indie label Rough Trade Records in 2012. From The Hills Below, The City landed them on several world-famous platforms such as fellow lovable Hoosier and David Letterman’s stage. When vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter Matt Myers first spoke with big-name producer Dave Cobb before working together on their sophomore LP Little Neon Limelight, the two laughingly agreed to “not make another fucking boring Americana record.” So again, a natural-sounding album captured familiarly came together, except this time with a #1 adult alternative radio single in “Sedona.” “I never once thought of us as an Americana band,” says drummer Shane Cody. “The four of us were just a rock band, but some of us had Southern accents,” he laughs. Cue Golden Age is the third album featuring some of the band’s most innovative and experimental songs. Coining the term “retro-future,” Houndmouth combined creative songwriting with avant-garde instrumentation like the synthesized roar of an actual black jaguar on the track “Black Jaguar.”
The band is recording and touring their upcoming untitled fourth album, expected to release in 2021. From their humble start, genre-defining hits, and experimentation, Houndmouth has and continues to make they are impactful felt with the unique take on storytelling through music.
