Dott – Galwegian pop duo release new E.P.
What you may need to know…
01. Robust cheering and rejoicing could be heard for miles from the usually austere
Karl’s den Broadsheet offices yesterday, with the release of new material from Galwegians Anna and Tebs, a.k.a. Dott.
02. Beginning life as an four-piece plying a ramshackle, yet impossibly, heart-warmingly, happy pop, the band came to attention with 2012’s Button E.P., featuring one of your writer’s favourite Irish pop cuts ever, in Let’s Do It (Let’s Fall in Love).
03. Streaming above is the band’s new E.P., Beverly Baldwin, releasing digitally and on cassette on New York’s Mirror Universe Tapes label.
04. Having bust down to a two-piece after getting married and moving to Toronto, the EP marks a turn for more focused, dreamy/gazey material with the aid of loops and effects.
Verdict: Older, wiser, better-travelled and more experienced, yet no less starry-eyed and hopeful. Fantastic.
