Their first notable show was at SXSW music festival in 2012 where Geoff Travis, the head of Rough Trade was in the audience and offered them a contact. Shortly after, the band was titled “Band Of The Week” by The Guardian. In 2013, Houndmouth released their debut album, From the Hills Below the City, on Rough Trade. This release led them to play late night shows and multiple major festivals. SPIN commented on the band and stated, “You’d be hard pressed to find a more effortless, well-crafted mix of roots and rock this year than the debut album from this Louisville quartet.”
