Track Dogs release their earworm new single ‘I Don’t Wanna Ruin It’ on March 2nd. The single heralds the imminent release of their fourth album in April along with festival dates and an Irish tour for summer 2018.
‘I Don't Wanna Ruin It’ was recorded old-school on analog tape and is a perfect taster of what to expect from the new album, which fuses their eclectic sound - singer-songwriter, roots and ‘south of the border’ in a style much becoming their own. The single will be available alongside a pre-order of the album on all streaming outlets & trackdogsmusic.com from March 2nd.
Based in Madrid, Track Dogs, comprised of 2 Irishmen, an Englishman and an American, have eschewed the typical band line-up. To dynamic effect they use the rhythmic groove of the Cajón (flamenco box drum) instead of drums and trumpet as the solo instrument. Show stealing four-part harmonies and a flair for penning toe-tapping, instantly catchy songs set Track Dogs apart.
With their fourth album on the way in early April and a summer of tour dates beckoning in the UK, Spain and Ireland, this ex-pat band aren't resting on their laurels. Already a hit on festival stages across the UK, Ireland and Spain, their 2016 Vantastival performance won them many fans with GoldenPlec saying “In a battle of the stages, Track Dogs were up against festival headliner Badly Drawn Boy. Wonderfully unfazed by this, the band drew one of the biggest crowds of the weekend - cheery, Spanish-tinged acoustica proving a hit with a crowd that wanted to dance.”
Their last album ‘Serenity Sessions’ was selected by FolkRadio.co.uk in their Top Albums of 2016 - "Their lively, melodic music has a strong American/Latin sentiment, a sense of fun and an abundance of sunshine". ‘Serenity Sessions’ featured 3 hit radio songs in Ireland - ‘Love Me Like You Used To’ and ‘To The End’ which was also played heavily on Robert Elms BBC Radio London show. ‘So Much Dust’ spent 10 weeks on the Irish national radio playlist and the album and singles so far have been lauded by critics far and wide. In 2017 they showcased at the prestigious Folk Alliance International conference in Kansas where they performed 7 shows in 5 days. They've also appeared at festivals in the UK & Ireland including Vantastival, Rochester Sweeps Festival, Ireland Bike Fest, Tentertainment and Broadstairs Folk Festival.

"The antidote to a bad day" Maverick ****
“Sumptuous harmonies and toe-tapping rhythm…” Hot Press, Ireland
“This band turned out to be a total discovery, with vocal harmonies on a par with groups like Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, America or the most melodic style of the Eagles mixed in with the graceful irreverence of The Pogues.” Renacer Eléctrico Music Magazine, Spain
“Try to give the music a name if you will; acoustic-roots, folk-pop – labels don’t really matter and would certainly be difficult to apply. Serenity Sessions is, above everything else, great fun to listen to.” R2, UK ****
