Artist: Dr Dog
Song: That Old Black Hole
Album: Be the Void
After working with an outside producer on their previous release, Dr. Dog went back to their self-produced roots for their seventh full-length release Be the Void. The Pennsylvania natives have the sound of a band that is not held back by outside influences or inhibitions. Full of powerhouse arrangements and the stunning harmonies of Scott McMicken and Toby Leaman, Be the Void isn’t more of the same, it’s just more.
An anthem for anyone who has ever felt like they just can’t win, “That Old Black Hole” showcases Dr Dog’s loose sound and interesting lyrical style that cannot be mistaken for any other band. The song has a charmingly manic sound and illusive lyrics that somehow find meaning in their vagueness. Treat your ears to “That Old Black Hole” below.
