Dog Bite conjures up images of DIIV and Nirvana to great results
Dog Bite creates a warm, summery aesthetic on his debut album Velvet Changes. He combines atmospheric, droning synths with the twinkling guitars that bring to mind artists like Wild Nothing and DIIV. But Dog Bite differs from these guys with his Nirvana-esque riffs that conjure a darker a darker atmosphere. There’s a lot going on with this album, and repeat listens are rewarding.
