Goan Dogs

Goan Dogs

Bristol five piece GOAN DOGS play warped guitar pop. Their stunning live shows and self-released material have gained them a loyal following on the ground and on the airwaves. The band’s 2021 debut album ‘Call Your Mum’ sits firmly in a warped atmosphere of dark synth/guitar pop. The debut gained heavy recognition from BBC Radio 1 gaining Jack SaundersNext Wave and landing ‘Ones To Watch 2021’ on the Radio 1/BBC Introducing Show. Their tracks have also landed airtime from the likes of Lauren Laverne, Chris Hawkins and Tom Robinson on BBC 6 Music, as well as consistent support on Radio X from John Kennedy among many, many others.

GOAN DOGS was conceived by lead singer Luke St Leger and drummer Daniel Lane. A misadventure in India gave the band its name when Luke ended up spending most of his time with Goa’s stray beach dogs. The Duo soon expanded their sound with the talents of friends and fellow musicians: Theo Mackie, Bill Sherwood and Sam Kynan Powell.
