DOG Power

Brand new sealed album with download voucher.

DOG Power was formed in 2017 by indie pop, singer-songwriter Sam Perry and experimental musician Henry Nicol in Christchurch, with Perry and Nicol relocating Belgrade, Serbia, out of a desire for the freedom to make their music their life.

Connecting over a shared fascination with fashion, glamour, cinema and the avant-garde, Perry and Nicol started working together in the underground venue/recording studio LOG Recording in 2017. Nestled in between Christchurch’s abandoned 40,000 person stadium and the city’s discrepant industrial zone, work began on what would eventually become DOG Power’s first release.

Intrigued by rock’n’roll, as well as non-musical and monotonous sounds, DOG Power’s music is rooted in their use of samples, live percussion, drum machines, synthesisers and guitars which lay a foundation for Perry’s deep, sonorous voice.

Taking equal ques from Sade and The Stooges, Serge Gainsbourg and Suicide, the seven songs on their self-titled recorded debut span genres, encompassing  everything  from  industrial  electronica  to  baroque  pop,  super-sonic  rock’n’roll  to  something out of a seventies spy film… One directed by  David  Lynch.

With an intoxicating, genre-blending sound, provocative and uncompromising songs, and the mesmerizing power of singer Sam Perry’s poetry and presence, DOG  Power  make  music  that  can  only  be  described  as cinematic.
