Jukebox Chatter: Dog Is Dead
Angela Petrovic gets down on the dance floor with youthful hopefuls Dog Is Dead
*Waves* Hello, Dog is Dead! You’re no stranger to festivals, with a slot on mostly all of the Major UK-festivals this year (Reading & Leeds, Hopfarm, T- In The Park). What’s the best festival experience you’ve had so far?
Playing Reading and Leeds, we've been to Leeds every year since we were like 14, so to be on that stage was such an exhilarating feeling.
New album “All Of Our Favourite Stories” is out on October 8th. What can we expect?
It's a real bi-polar record, there's poppy, upbeat material and then there's also a deeper, darker side to our music.
Familiar sounds to the previous three EPs or something completely different?
In some ways, but we've explored our sounds and come up with some new creations.
You’re heading out on a headline UK Tour pretty soon. Would you say it's more difficult to headline or open up in terms of a performance?
More difficult isn't the phrase we'd use. Opening up a show means there is less pressure because noone is there to see you, but when you do a headline show you know everyone is there to see you and it gives you a boost. Neither are difficult, they both have great positives.
A Recent study has shown Pop music has gradually become more depressing. What’s one song that instantly lifts your spirits?
Anything by James Brown or Stevie Wonder is normally good to perk you up. Pop music nowadays hides the depressing lyrics behind big beats and synth lines so it's kind of a juxtaposition. I'd have to have a read of the study in full to see whether I agree or not.
Finally, you've got one token in the jukebox, what's it going to be?
I doubt the other guys would agree with me but...
