Des Moines band, Holy White Hounds are just about as Midwestern grit as you can get. I have a feeling they fit in seamlessly at dive bars and their music can be heard blasting from secondhand cars driving down long stretches of highway.
Echoes of grunge and alt-rock reverberate through smooth Jack White-esque guitar melodies. Bluesy vocals effortlessly dive from high coos to low growls. Holy White Hounds aren't just one thing, but they're definitely not just another rock and roll band.
Their video for "Switchblade" features questionable decisions and a lot of alcohol (I counted three bottle pulls, nine shots and three beers). I'm also sure they had a lot of fun during the video shoot with some lady-on-lady action. Don't watch it if you're hungover. Absolutely watch if you want to feel like a badass.
