Yep. You get swept away by ‘2425’ by Getaway Dogs. Nothing unusual if you’d felt the vibe of the band; certainly fascinating if for the first time.
Getaway Dogs is the brainchild of Brazilian-American, Santa Cruz-based songwriter, Kai Killion. And this self described project that is “Cushy Bedroom Psychedelic Bossanova & Dreamsurf” thingamajig, really caters to your ‘other self’ – the self that comes back from work and is opposite of your corporate persona.
You sit on your favorite chair at home.
You pull up your practical side table.
You draw down the curtains.
Enjoying the after dinner mints of a song like ‘2425’, melting in the brain of your emotions.
That last deep sigh of breath comes out, totally relaxing you from the day’s chores.
Their latest album ‘Belong’ narrows in on Getaway Dogs’ unique style from previous bodies of work. Unifying psychedelic surf-rock, indie, folk, soul and Tropicália, it dives deeper into the hidden caves of musical discovery, embracing the vastness without going adrift. Getaway Dogs lure multitudes of sound from behind each corner, giving them a space to roam together.
The album title, ‘Belong’, calls the listener in to feel at home in the dreamscape, and to hold space for those who feel overwhelmed by the current state of the world.
Yep. You get swept away.
And that is cool, by you.
See them next @ Michael’s On Main, Soquel, California on October 11th.
