With a musical vision that began in 2008, the New Orleans’ experimental rock outfit, Biscuithound, emits an evolving sound and lyrical message that is human, real, raw, and above all, transcendental. With their often-lengthy compositions, the band balances an accessible use of melody and catchy riffing with a healthy dose of progressive adventurism, ambient layering, and gritty contrast.
2010’s “Meet You at the Riverbone” was akin to an atmospheric rock album with singer-songwriter roots, delivering distinctive content for such a young band. It was ambitious with its instrumental segments and conceptual use of cinematic-style sound design. From this foundation, the group sought to delve into heavier live performances over the coming years.
After a period of reformation and redirection, 2018’s long-awaited second album, “Possible at Sea,” delivers a bigger, more mature, and haunting sound with dense layers, killer guitars, sonic experimentation, and evocative lyrics. Floating somewhere between post-grunge, spacey soundscapes, and subtle improvisations, Biscuithound offers a freshness to hard rock, with an emotional and intellectual seriousness.
Biscuithound makes a commitment to change and embrace transformation — to explore newer sonic reaches as it is necessary to communicate the musical message within. The third album is in production now, morphing and forming. Stay tuned for more news of Phase III.
