Purveyors of the finest psychedelic Americana folk rock, Dip Road Dogs have produced a killer single with Labour Day.
Chugging guitars, unstoppable percussion, and hypnotic vocals will lull listeners into a grooving trance, while mesmerising strings provide an all-encompassing bed for the melodies to float upon. It’s impossible to ignore this irresistible beat. “The single was written and recorded at our studio in the middle of the Leaghur Forest in Northern Victoria and recorded in Nashville, Tennessee – funnily enough, we wrote it on Labour Day after a big weekend at Golden Plains,” explains lead vocalist Dave Chirnside. “We had the music written for almost six months but only got around to writing the lyrics for it the night before we were due to track vocals at a studio in Nashville. The song is about procrastination, not being able to write lyrics to music you have, it's basically about doing your own thing and not letting other people's opinions prevent you from doing what you want to do.”
