Already garnering a strong buzz in their hometown of Atlanta, Georgia (USA), five-piece Dot.s aim to make their mark on the UK electro-pop scene with the captivating ‘Cardboard Queen’ and ‘Glossy’ double A-side release on April 21st via Rose Parade Recording Co. You can stream both songs here and here.
Already spanning a discography of three LP’s in five years, and a fourth album in the pipeline, the incredibly prolific Dot.s continue to push the electronic, psych and indie soundscapes of forefathers MGMT and Tame Impala into new territory. Their goal with this double A -side is to push their concept of dance music far from where it comfortably rests in its current iteration. Dot.s pride themselves in an obsessive and meticulous care over their sonic palette.
Frontman Ryan James uses heavy repetition, both lyrically and melodically, in his song-writing as a tool to build a sonic world which can be likened to Omni and Reptar. Excited by the idea of layering and weaving psychedelic instrumentation, Dot.s used the approach of diptychs from the world of visual art as the main inspiration for the concept of Cardboard Queen and Glossy.
Previously supporting the likes of TEMPLES and gracing the offices of Paste Magazine for a live session, the band are gearing up for an exciting few months ahead.
