The Hound of Love Bio:
You probably know Andrew Bassett best as Jeans Wilder, one crucial third of pop-punk masters Mean Jeans. But when he’s not touring and recording with the best pop-punk band in the world, Bassett flies solo and indulges his love of eighties new wave as The Hound of Love.
Having released full-length cassettes on Burger Records and Plastic Response Records in 2013 and 2014, respectively, Houndy was poised to become a prolific one-man factory of finely honed nostalgia. Instead, he went into tinkering mode. “Since Careful Houndy came out I've been doing what I always do, which is recording a bunch of song ideas and little jams and whatnot at home and hoarding them on a hard drive,” Bassett explains.
Now, after five long years of public silence, The Hound of Love is ready to bless the world anew with his pleasure-seeking brand of synth-pop bliss, and Drunk Dial Records couldn’t be happier to have a hand in his return.
