This review was originally published in May of 2018.
With a soft lonely voice and an ear for compelling melody, this one starts out smooth and uses threads of nostalgic imagery to weave a warm tuneful quilt of folky pop. Foreign Dog sheds light on universal themes of life choice, relationships, and playground flashbacks with a slow, processional sort of grace.
It feels solemn, inspired, and wistful, with a beautifully swollen chorus of voices, corridors of reverb, and a faded military march. This is a poem in your ear, effortlessly delivered, as a reminder to appreciate life in its totality.
Foreign Dog is a singer-songwriter from London.
