The third single from the rejuvenated Wolfhounds in 12 months, again on Odd Box, sees the band return with a double ‘A’ side. Following on from the superb 2013 singles ‘Cheer Up’ and ‘Divide and Fall’ (both of which featured in the 2013 official Festive 50). Both ‘Cheer Up’ and ‘Divide and Fall’ gained favourable reviews (‘Divide and Fall’ is a cert for indie nights, guaranteed to prompt dervish dancing from drunken studes” – according to Record Collector) and saw the band play New York Popfest , Berlin Popfest and the C86 inspired Scared To Get Happy Boxset launch party in London. 2014 will see a long player emerge at some point, collecting together their singles and assorted other recordings from the past 12 months. The new double A side single sees ‘Anthem’ paired with ‘Middle-Aged Freak’. ‘Anthem’ finds the band broadening their sound with synth and choppy guitars to the fore, this song is again produced by Ant Chapman (Collapsed Lung, Ten Benson) where as the home recorded ‘Middle-Aged Freak’ sees the band thrashing together a punkier song – albeit a punk song for their generation. Their is an menacing anger and danger to these new recordings. The band seem to have got angrier with age. 2014 is set to be a big year for The Wolfhounds as the expanded C86 reissue comes around. But these stalwarts of that scene are not content with looking backwards. They’re fired up and raring to go. And they are ready to give any band half their age a run for their money. The Wolfhounds are back and better than ever.
