2018 was a massive year for WA’s Good Doogs. They released three singles (“Nothing To Do”, “So Dumb” and “Want That”) which all received significant radio airplay on triple j, triple j unearthed, and community radio around the country, a few hundred thousand streams, as well as packed up the van for four (yes, FOUR) laps of the country.
As well as going on tour with Tired Lion and being invited to play BIGSOUND Festival, 2018 also saw The Doogs selling out their first ever headline shows outside WA – capping rooms in Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Sydney and playing to the biggest crowds of their career. The only thing that stopped them doing another lap was mum would be super mad if they didn’t come home for Chrissy lunch.
If you think they decided to kick back during the new year and have a beer, you don’t know The Doogs yet.
Here’s new single “Nobody/Alone” – a jangly surf punk bop about anxiety and how it can overwhelm you. Sometimes you don’t even want to leave the house. The band explains;
“The track is about getting up the courage to leave the house because all your friends want you to, but once you are out – everything and everyone is still too overwhelming that you just want to get back home but your problems are still there too. So it’s basically about anxiety and how it can ruin your life…”
The Doogs will also be joining DZ Deathrays on some upcoming shows, along with Party In The Paddock, City Limits Festival, and The Hills Are Alive Festival, with more shows to be announced soon.
