Track Of The Day #380: Dott – Small Pony


Hailing from Galway, Ireland – Dott are a three girl one boy pocket rocket set to steal hearts – that is if ‘Small Pony’ is anything to go by. Proudly boasting a debut full length via grave face tucked under their collective arm aptly named ‘Swoon’ – something which we’ll be tucking into over the weekend as we add it to our must hear listening list – the band have been attracting acclaim and adoring glances like no ones business. Culled from that set ‘Small Pony’ is a positive riot of colourfully teen tingled effervescence, a strut-a-rama lama biff bang pow beauty that perkily buzzes and bops to a lost golden age of sound all butter kissed in honeyed 50’s bubble grooves that chirpily play tag with Spector femme factory whilst see sawing deliriously to a sun sizzled screwball sounds no doubt crafted in the buzz popped power chord likeness of the Shaggs.
