CALL YOUR MUM | DEBUT ALBUM | FRIDAY 5 FEB 2021 | LISTEN
Ten years after their first gig GOAN DOGs are proud to announce their long awaited debut album, Call Your Mum. It’s top advice for anyone in the
privileged position of having a mum they can talk to. The album is filled with lost people, unfulfilled people, confused people, heartsick people and
anxious people. In nine out of ten cases, they should call their mum and tell them they’re coming home.
GOAN DOGS play warped guitar pop. A decade on the scene, their stunning live shows and self-released material have gained them a loyal
following on the ground and on the airwaves with repeat plays and support from BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 6 Music, XFM and Amazing Radio. Now
the Bristol five-piece are ready 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 misadventure in India gave the band its name when Luke ended up spending most of his time
with Goa’s stray beach dogs. The fledgling duo soon expanded their sound with the talents of friends and fellow musicians: Theo Mackie, Bill
Sherwood and Sam Kynan Powell. After 10 years of musical evolution their debut album sits firmly in a warped atmosphere of dark synth/guitar pop.
It’s the perfect accompaniment and the perfect message for these strange times - CALL YOUR MUM.
