Australia has consistently delivered some of the world’s hottest indie dance, rock, and pop acts of the last decade and their latest export, Damn Dogs, is no exception. While the Melbourne foursome have only just revealed their sound to the world, the band are no strangers to fans and the industry.
Frontman Chris Cester and bass player Mark Wilson make up the rhythm section for Aussie superstars, Jet, while longtime friends and collaborators Mitch McIvor and Louis Macklin round out the line up. With few traces of their other band to be found, Damn Dogs carve out a bombastic warpath to the dancefloor, conjuring images of Gorillaz in a coke-fueled fistfight with the Beastie Boys at a Clash show in one of Andy Warhol’s factories. With dark, infectious hooks and sinister rhythms that give even the most jaded rocker reason to dance, Damn Dogs are not for the passive listener.
