NEW INDIE ARTIST FINDS: DOG ORCHESTRA
OK, I’m going to be honest with you guys. This post is potentially the most important thing you’ll read all year, and I’m not kidding. If this new artist find is a thing to judge the rest of 2014 by, I’d say we’re in for one hell of a year! I mean, seriously. How are they this good? Why isn’t everyone listening to them yet? Oh, I know. Because Bitcandy is the shit and we find all the best indie music before anyone else touches it...or at least we should say without your help. In this case, a sweet Congrats belongs to Jay Ray who just got his 1st Curator find and badge on BitCandy!
Ok...back to script, Swedish duo Dog Orchestra deserves 100% of your attention RIGHT NOW. So turn off that porn, stop smoking whatever you’re smoking, put the pizza away and get turned on by Dog Orchestra. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
For an emerging band with only 32 followers on Soundcloud, it’s only a matter of days before the hipsters find out about them, so get on this shit now and show everyone how much better you are than them.
DOG ORCHESTRA – BROKE
This track is ridiculous good. I mean, I feel like creating the first ever Bitcandy Emerging Artist award and sending it to them. Can we do that?! There’s something so new and fresh and delightful about the ways these mysterious fellows sound, that I can’t help thinking that we would make the greatest of friends. "Broke" was released about a month ago and if you’ve heard this track, you’ve experienced a greatness that can’t easily be matched. It’s slow, it’s soft and it’s smooth. It’s goes down just right, like a cigarette the morning after. That voice (whoever’s voice it is) has an old soul thing going on and I just want to take a bath in it. No, I want to drown in it. I want it to be the last thing I hear if I die right now, because the only thing exciting about a new year, is the possibility that you might, just might, stumble upon something like this.
DOG ORCHESTRA – CLUB FRAGIL FT. LUNE
As if the beautiful Lune isn’t devastatingly haunting enough for one track, this colab is likely the closest thing to heaven you’ll ever get. It sounds so pretty indeed, and I don’t want it to ever end. Yeah, sure, we’ll all get tired of it at some point, but I don’t think I’ll ever forget the newly born feeling of having your faith in music restored that it gave me. "CLUB Fragil" is listed as disco on Soundcloud, so you know these guys have a sense of humor about what they’re doing too, and that’s always nice.
DOG ORCHETRA – BERLIN 1
"BERLIN 1" is a bit different from the last two tracks. It grows, ever so perfectly. You know, I get a Moby vibe from this track, but not really. It’s hard to put your finger on any strong references or influences, because their music has its own life. It’s like opening a packet of sea monkeys and suddenly you’ve got a whole new population on your hands. A whole new world of possibilities for tracks and sound and collaborations that you’ve been waiting for your own life, or at least from when you started to listening to music you find on Bitcandy.
Now here’s the important part: Dog Orchestra are SO good that Bitcandy (on behalf of yours truly) is challenging any one of you nerds to find a band/artist that’s better. That makes us more excited, more deluded, more embarrassingly happy. If you know a band, drop a link in the comments. If you know a guy that knows a guy that knows a band, share this post with them and especially mention our little challenge. If you can impress us enough, you’ll earn yourself a Bitcandy New Artist Find post to show your band off to the world. Now that’s the challenge you’ve been waiting for, isn’t it?!
BUT before you go crazy on my ass, check out Dog Orchestra on these social platforms and tell them how much you adore them because I know you do, no matter how much you want me to be wrong:
P.S If you think this is an over-exaggeratory post with no criticism, edge or fiery displays of pop culture knowledge, then you and that annoyingly negative voice in your head can go listen to whatever Rolling Stone mag is churning out these days, because that’s what you deserve, BITCH.
About Bianca Fernandes
Bianca Fernandes has an unfounded love for Taylor Swift and an unexplainable, burning hatred for Bob Dylan. In her opinion, that's the perfect combination to be a music reviewer. And she doesn't give an F about what you have to say about it. She writes for one person, and that's herself. Think grumpy cat with a weakness for music and watching Miley Cyrus twerk. But she does other things simply for cash, like social media, web content creation and some crazy blogging when necessary.
