Needle Drop: Greyhounds, “What’s
on Your Mind”

Austin, TX houses a renowned musical landscape—from kickstarting the career of SRV in the ’70s to hosting SXSW today, the Live Music Capital of the World certainly has room to brag. Austin’s Greyhounds is no exception. A product of the late ’90s, the band has established a distinct following through their spirited live shows.

Quite frankly, the duo’s draw lies in their passion for high quality tunes. They stand on the doorstep of the blues, occasionally stepping off into a field of raffish rock ‘n’roll. Their vocals have a weathered finish, a perfect touch for their soul soaked style. “What’s on Your Mind,” a track from their 2014 album Accumulator, is a warm groove the bleeds honesty.

Guitarist Andrew Trube begins with a slow haunting guitar lick, and singer/keyboardist Anthony Farrell quickly fleshes out the full song with deep lyrics. Occasionally he reaches for the falsetto, creating a unique tension of highs and lows. It’s an emotional interrogation with traces of funk and R&B lingering in the background.

The song ponders the shaky ways we talk to each other, hinting at the inherent flaws of communication. No need to say more—the song’s better at it anyway.

Greyhounds’ new live LP, Heaven on Earth is in stores now.
