Deathly the Dog – “Horsefly” [EP]

Deathly the Dog - Horsefly

Tag: Spotlight

Release date: 1 February 2014

From Johnson City, TN, Deathly the Dog play punk rock in the style of early-90s West Coast bands on their EP Horsefly. The double-tracked vocals aren’t so much yelled as much as said really, really loud (does that make sense?). The amped-up, cacophonous, faintly dissonant guitars change up movements several times in each two-/three-minute song! Deathly the Dog has an irreverent attitude toward songwriting that is not unlike 60s/70s garage rock bands. They embody the angular “post-” aesthetic espoused by hardcore bands such as At the Drive-In and Fugazi.  The stream-of-consciousness lyrics are entertaining and appealing in a schizoid way. Play this up.

Good for morning shows and punk shows. It’s self-released.
