Exposure is our scrapbook of our favourite new bands. Today's exposure features London grandiose-folk foursome Winterhours.

  • Name: Such Hounds
  • Location: London, UK
  • Genre: Jangly alt-folk
  • For Fans of: Radical Face, Dry The River
  • Website: Facebook

Ex-Winchester residents Winterhours may sound like they’d be an unwelcome aural reminder of our current, bleak seasonal predicament, but - on the contrary – they’re actually a group of Americana-indebted beard enthusiasts, who deliver Radical Face’s rousing alt-folk with added vim and jangle. They do also incorporate some of Dry The River’s cooing melancholy into their wonderfully warming blend as well and it’s none more noticeable than on their sweeping debut single ‘Ocean Heart’, which was self-released on 07 January 2013.
