dog eyes release new single “rusty, my dog”

dog eyes are back today with a new single, “rusty, my dog.”

It’s a daydream-y slowcore song that calmly floats on a gentle breeze. “Matching the minimalist bedroom pop and unexpected existentialism of Hovvdy’s early work with the surreal tinge of @, the track is another promising indication of what dog eyes’ Grand Jury debut will have in store,” said FLOOD Mag in their premiere this morning.

The duo sums up the single as “a grumbling, slow-and-steady meditation about Martin, our favorite dog. While light-hearted and sweet, it sends us off with chilling mantras like: ‘I don’t exist outside of his big ears,’ and ‘I’m not whole when you’re not around.’”.

The song follows “fair,” which was paired with our signing announcement last month via Paste Magazine , who praised it for being “a green-as-grass folk track with cosmic vocal harmonies that sound like acid-covered flannel shirts come alive.”

Both songs are from a larger project that will be announced soon. In other news, the band just announced an upcoming show at San Francisco’s Bottom of the Hill on August 15th. Tickets available here.
