DOGS / Drift – Press Release / May 2015
Having spent the last year writing and recording new material, Dublin-based indie-electronica band DOGS are back with Drift, the first track from their forthcoming EP.
The four track EP was recorded throughout 2014 with Jonathan Black in Dublin and mixed in the early part of 2015 in Jonathan’s studio in North London.
Drift features a video directed by New York based Irishman Shane Mahon, shot at Castlepalooza 2014. The track is available on iTunes and Spotify from Thursday 4th June. The full EP will be available for download and streaming later in Summer 2015 – details TBC.
DOGS formed in 2011 with the common view of making electronic music delivered with the impact of a live band. They are Andrew Brennan (vocals, guitar), Conor McGlynn (guitar), Ronan Marr (production) and Dave Sheehan (bass). Previous release Out in Cover EP enjoyed positive critical reaction and debuted at No. 1 in the iTunes Electronic Charts.
To mark the release of Drift, DOGS play midnight at Whelan’s Upstairs on Saturday 13th June. Entry is free by commenting on the Facebook event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/696042350524249/
