Dog Bite teases 'LA EP' with dreamy new single

dog_bite_la_ep_cover.jpg

Having spent a fair amount of time on the road with Toro y Moi since the release of Velvet Changes, Dog Bite has continued to develop and record new material in makeshift and commandeered studios whenever possible. Phil Jones' post-chill wave project has used its downtime and is now queuing up an EP with a full-length to follow. The fittingly titled LA EP was recorded in Toro y Moi guitarist Jordan Blackmon's Los Angeles apartment while Blackmon's band was on tour in Australia, leaving Jones, bassist Woody Shortridge, and drummer Tak Takemura to their own devices. The resulting four tracks attempt to capture three East Coast shoegaze-pop enthusiasts jamming new sounds on a listless, West Coast afternoon. "Cold Weather," the first single released off the EP, drifts a darkly weightless course chartered by fluidly seductive bass lines, rippling reverb, and sedated percussion loops. The track reveals a dialed-down element that was all but avoided on Dog Bite's debut. Carpark will issue a limited vinyl pressing Sept. 17, also making the entire EP available for free online.

LA EP tracklist:
1. Warm, Wake Up
2. Hunting Seasons
3. Cold Weather
4. LA Sounds
