PURSUED BY DOGS
Pursued By Dogs (Own Release)
The Dublin band have attracted plenty of attention over the past year thanks to a handful of slow-burning, atmospheric songs, and this impressive debut album delivers on much of that promise. A moody brand of electronica is at the heart of their sophisticated compositions, especially the outstanding ‘Talk’. At times, their epic sound drifts towards melodrama but when they rein in their excesses, they’re on sure ground: witness the propulsive, xx-like ‘Iceland’.
