Bristol 5-piece Goan Dogs bring their own brand of warped guitar pop to Ramsgate this October, laced with infectious hooks and irresistible grooves. Fans of Glass Animals – take note!
Their debut album ‘Call Your Mum’ graced our ears earlier this year, and we can’t wait to hear these songs live. Time to get our groove on.
“Near-tropical percussion mixed with vibrant electronica – a breezy bed for jangly guitar melodies to surf over” – The Line of Best Fit
Nearly ten years on the scene, their stunning live shows and self-released material have gained them a loyal following throughout the band’s evolution. Now the Bristol five-piece sit poised to release their long awaited debut LP ‘Call Your Mum’. Goan Dogs was conceived in 2010 by lead singer Luke St Leger and drummer, Daniel Lane. A coming of age trip to India provided the band name when Luke became gripped by Goa’s stray dog population. The fledgling duo soon expanded their sound with the talents of friends and fellow musicians: Theo Mackie, Bill Sherwood and Sam Kynan Powell. Their progress as musicians has been diligent and timely, as they approach the release of their debut album and given the jittery lockdown vibes of these strange times, it seems their timing is perfectly on message.
