Heir of Hounds

 

Heir of Hounds, a three-piece alternative rock band from Singapore, is announcing the release of their new single, “Circles”, alongside a new lyric music video. The band is working with Singapore’s music producer, Marlon Ingle, who has produced for the likes of Villes of Zestone Records Japan, Make Them Suffer of Roadrunner Records, Reuby of Warner Music Singapore and most recently, Gentle Bones of Universal Music.

“Circles” is Heir of Hounds’ second self-released single, which will be in their upcoming debut EP, “Retrospect”. The song showcases powerful instruments and emotive vocals, bringing together an intense piece of composition. “Circles” not only displays strong vocal abilities and lyrical insight but provides a sample into the band’s sound and their upcoming 5-track debut EP.

Based on the concept of life cycles, “Circles” touches on the subject of creation, destruction and re-creation as well as one’s experiences in dealing with positive or negative memories. “The subject in the song feels a need to break out as he is haunted by his past memories so he decides to destroy himself in hopes of rebuilding a better future,” Seran Yeo, the lyricist of the band explains. “One is able to feel the frustration he feels, as it is strongly expressed as the track carries forward”. The lyric music video for “Circles” was filmed during their supporting show in Singapore with American rock band, Our Last Night, by local cinematographers Set In Motion Media. The video can be viewed at the band’s official YouTube page.

Heir of Hounds debuted with their first single, “Beginnings”, in August 2014 and quickly garnered a following within Singapore and across Malaysia. The band comprises of Yeo, 23 on vocal and guitars, Tay Yong Le, 23 on bass guitar and Sherman Lee, 23 on drums. With past experiences playing in different bands, the trio under the moniker, Heir of Hounds, has been performing together since their first appearance on stage in Penang, Malaysia at the 5° North Music Festival in 2014. With growing support and a few notable live shows under their belt, Heir of Hounds is planning the release of their debut EP ‘Retrospect’ later this year.
