In the Spring of 2014, the band known as Bird Dog retreated to a house in the heart of Latigo Canyon to collaborate with producer James McAllister (Sufjan Stevens, Ivan and Alyosh). Three weeks later, the four young men emerged with their debut LP which was aptly entitled Hello Latigo. Inspired by “the canyon’s crisp mornings, misty days, and clear evenings” and evoking “hometown sunsets, new coastal adventures, and late nights spent creating music,” the Malibu-based act splendidly channeled the natural, pristine ambience they felt through enveloping harmonies which break into melodic folk rock rumbles. Here’s the forthcoming album’s debut single “The Ocean and The Sea”:
“Come light the day, oh sun, start to wake my eyes.”
Bird Dog will perform at Hotel Cafe on May 1st.
