The Hounds came together in 2018 through a common love of classic U.K., U.S., and Australian punk and garage rock. Since then they have been belting out their own brand of high energy rock ’n’ roll in Hobart’s pubs and clubs.
The vast majority of their considerable repertoire is penned by Jasper and Aydn, with a few touchstone covers thrown in, including tunes from Stiff Little Fingers, The Standells, and The Specials.
Capitalising on a slew of regular live gigs, in December, 2020 The Hounds released their debut recording effort, “Spare Change” as a 45 single and a 4-song CD e.p.
The New Town Hounds are a 3 piece Rock n' Roll band from Hobart, Tasmania; taking influences from Classic Punk Rock, Ska & Reggae, and 60's R&B.
