Bloodhounds On My Trail increase their clout with their new single “She’s In My Plans”. Dreamy and catchy in all the right places, BHOMT capture that quintessential between lucidity and divinity without accidently sounding malaise or overbearing. They achieve the capturing of a dream onto disc with little effort and bring shoegaze one step closer to mass appeal.
@JamesFettes thanks for your article on BT Construction. Damning... Myself along with many other owners face the same problem in VIC. Watersun Construction has gone under and we are fighting in VCAT against insurance company.

About Bloodhounds On My Trail:
Melbourne shoegazers Bloodhounds On My Trail have announced ‘She’s In My Plans’ as the second single from their ‘Escape II’. This follows up the first lead track ‘Jolly’, which also got the remix treatment on this release by groundbreaking dreampop duo Ummagma. That track is premiering in Canada’s renowned Northern Transmissions.
Bloodhounds On My Trail are Johnny Green (guitar, vocals), Chris Donaldson (guitar), Nik Donaldson (drums) and Ché Walden (bass). Rooted in their joint love of shoegaze bands, ranging from the late 1980s to early 90s, Bloodhounds On My Trail aim to fuse the rhythmic underpinnings of bands like the Velvet Underground and the Stooges with the infectious stylings of shoegaze luminaries such as Cocteau Twins and Slowdive.
Since playing their first show in February 2014, the band has been blossoming through a whirlwind combination of live shows, festivals and recording sessions. Their music was met with positive reactions, encouraging press, and opportunities to play with notable Australian artists such as Lowtide, Contrast, and White Walls.2015 also seen the band gain momentum with appearances at local gaze festivals alongside Flyying Colours, Immigrant Union, Black Cab and Day Ravies.
Thanks to Tonedeaf and Gabe Lewis from Lowtide, one of the foremost shoegaze acts in Australia, Bloodhounds on My Trail began to be known as one of the best Aussie shoegaze acts around. “They sound like how I want my guitars to sound,” Gabe explains. “Needless to say, I was immediately hooked. Really languid, cascading washes, and wearing their pastoral shoegaze influences on their sleeves.”
The band recorded this music at Birdland Studios with renowned engineer and producer Matthew Hosking, the go-to guru of Australia’s burgeoning shoegaze scene, known for his outstanding work with fellow shoegazers Lowtide, Contrast, vhs dream and Hideous Towns.
“I hope for people to enjoy it and get a buzz off our tunes. We ain’t preaching anything, just making music we find exciting and want to record and play live,” says Johnny Green.
‘Escape II’ numbered in nearly a dozen ‘Best of 2015’ charts, including Stereo Embers Magazine, The Record Stache, The Revue, Shoegazer Alive and YesIndie. Shoegazemania named ‘Escape’ the year’s number 2 EP, which also ranked high among EPs for the world’s 2 leading shoegaze radio stations: DKFM and Primal Radio & Music Blog. Both Custom Made Music and Terapija.net included ‘She’s In My Plans’ at #6 in their year’s top songs.
‘Escape II’ was released in December by Moon Sounds Records, an American niche shoegaze/ dreampop / postpunk label which is also home to such notable bands as Ceremony, The Foreign Resort, Dead Leaf Echo, Static Daydream, Follow The Sea and Canada-Ukraine dreampop duo Ummagma.
