Household Dogs will usher you into their world of desolate landscapes and brooding

Born out of a damp terraced house basement in late 2016, this Leeds four-piece have been
welding together elements of Americana and Alternative Rock, birthing their own gritty
pseudo-country sound.

Drawing influence from the likes of Johnny Cash, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, and The National, a unique formula has been created. This formula blends the poetry of Declan Newcombe (singer and finalist in the 2016 American Songwriting Awards) with the dynamic riffs and rhythms of bassist Matthew Fogg, guitarist Henry Chatham, and drummer Patch Morgan.

In the one short year since their inception, the group has begun to wash their transatlantic
sound over the UK. After the release of their first single 'Basement 7' in April 2017, The Dogs
have been cutting their teeth playing shows around the UK displaying their dominant
performances. Most notably they have become a favorite at London’s Sofar Sounds shows,
bringing energy and sweat to their intimate settings, gaining attention with their cover of the Nick Cave classic, 'Red Right Hand' which was filmed in August of 2017.

November 2017 played host to the release of their second single ‘Is This All’. The track
immediately gained them recognition, being picked up by BBC 6 Music’s Tom Robinson who
featured it on his 6 Music show and made it his track of the week:

‘This is The Real Deal – no ifs, no buts: just click “play” and hear for yourself. A straight 10 out of 10’. - Tom Robinson (Fresh on the Net / BBC 6 Introducing Mix Tape)

Other reviews of Household Dogs' work includes:

“Cleverly written, and we haven’t had much like it in the uploader for some time.” - Alan Raw (BBC Introducing West Yorkshire)

“Imbued with a country flavour, yet the overlay of shadowy rock allows them to create music which affords a clear distinction in sound from any preconceptions.” - Emerging Indie Bands

“Household Dogs took no prisoners for creating the best listening experience with their new single Is This All.” - Volume .
