Austin’s A Giant Dog release their fourth album, Toy, on August 25th. On the single “Photograph,” they take a whack at the great American punk-rock love song. Sabrina Ellis’s wide-eyed, raw-nerved delivery hits the target.
The words call to mind John Prine’s “In Spite of Ourselves,” with their focus on love’s realest and least glamorous moments. But you’ll also hear the band suck glam-rock guitarmonies into their sonic scheme with fluency and style. The coolest and the funnest–keep your ears out for them.
