After debuting themselves to the world in January, Galway garage band Dott have shacked up with Popical Island on their debut EP release. Mining the same ’60s girl-harmony rock ‘n’ roll DIY aesthetic that the Dum Dum Girls and Vivian Girls amongst others have been exploring of late, Dott also includes hat tips to ’90s alt-rock groups like Throwing Muses. All four tracks are kept very much on the distorted lo-fi buzz but the band’s penchant for a pop chorus shines through the static.
Upcoming gigs: Roisin Dubh, Galway May 17th. Eamon Dorans on the Green, Dublin, May 18th. Bourkes, Limerick, May 24th.
