Episode 37: Handsome Hound Balance the Whimsical and Contemplative on Debut EP

Folk duo Handsome Hound’s debut EP is dominated by playful melodies, but their lyrics strike a more serious note. I Guess We’re Doing Alright taps into the uncertainty of coming of age, feeling constrained by societal norms, and the camaraderie that surrounds those feelings.

On this episode of femchord.fm, Claire Daviss and Cuchulain Kelly talk about their songwriting process, folk influences, and bringing the character from their song “Hannah” to life.
