Bridge Dog are a boy-girl duo, based in Sydney, who, after a few separate tracks earlier this year, have now released the 6-track EP Going South. Their music is an interesting mix of dream pop and fuzz rock, with jangly guitars and sweet, sunny vocals. The title track could easily become a classic, thanks to the driving melody, but even more so because of the memorable lyrics – phrases like “I drove to the end of the road // Just to see how far it goes” and “Try not to wear it on your sleeve // A vicious circle by design” are too well-found to forget. If we had a label, we’d want to sign this band today. RIYL Alvvays, Chime School, Falconet.
