[Download] Hounds - "The Wicked Witch"

Essex four-piece Hounds have just unveiled the first track from their upcoming EP The Wicked which drops on June 4th. "The Wicked Witch" is a bit reminiscent of older Does It Offend You Yeah? with its frantic dance-punk sound, thus I am not even a little surprised to hear that the band has been receiving praise from not just DIOYY but the likes of The Prodigy as well. In fact, The Prodigy are into Hounds' music and live show so much that they were hand picked by them to perform at their festvial last year. In addition to an EP launch party at the end of the month, the band will also be performing at this year's Download Festival as well.

If you like the sounds of "The Wicked Witch" below, just wait. After giving the EP a few spins already, I can tell you that are even more great tracks to come.
