Released: February 2005
Mixing barbershop harmonies with short, sharp snaps of post-punk guitar riffing in post-industrial Northern Britain was pretty darn special, but it was this, the Futureheads’ re-imagining of Kate Bush’s 1985 smasher that would prove their most widely loved track. Caught between Ross Millard’s dewy lead vocal, the break-neck drum track and the very real mutt-ish backing harmonies, this track felt like you were taking off with the world beneath your feet. The first flushes of love coming at you as buildings collapse, mountains crash in the background but you walk along, zombie-like oblivious to it all. In fact, it felt like the hounds of love really were coming for you. (PE)
