Glasgow-based indie actArmy of Moths have released a dog-themed EP as a download and CD.
Lasting 20 minutes, ‘The Canine Trilogy’ contains three tunes – ‘A Canine Prayer’, ‘Astropup’, and lead track ‘Dogs’ – the latter originally written on a PlayStation in 2001, and described as “some kind of nonsense about the story of a dog who turns into a man”.
It’s the first new material from the act in a year, after EP ‘My Kingdom For a Horse‘ in April 2020, which was followed by free download single ‘Why D’ya Have To Be So Freaky?‘ a couple of months later.
Acting as a stopgap while the band work on forthcoming album, ‘A Pleasant Nervousness’ the new tracks were mixed and mastered in Bergen by André Lund, of Major Parkinson, who also plays guitar to the recordings while his bandmate Sondre Veland contributes drums.
The duo of David and Debz (guitarist JP having been on hiatus recording-wise due to lockdown) own four dogs themselves, with the EP dedicated to Patch, Nelson, Bumpy Dog & Bowie.
