DOTT "Swoon" LP


Ireland’s not the first place you’re likely to consider when you think of sunny, hook-heavy garage pop, but clearly someone in the Emerald Isle has been digging through the old Beach Boy records. Swoon, the debut from this Irish indie quartet, is simply impossible to not like instantly for all but the hardcore jaded out there. It would be easy to name check bands like Best Coast in trying to describe their sound, but Dott actually hues closer vocally to bands like the aforementioned Beach Boys and The Hollies, but with female a singer, and with guitars and drumming that borrows from garage bands of the same era. A dozen tracks in all and the album breezes by effortlessly, over before you realize it. With their first outing the band has managed to come up with something comfortingly familiar, yet still wholly original. I’m not sure how a small indie label from Georgia stumbled on the band, but it certainly bodes well for the tastemakers at Graveface Records
