 NEW RELEASE
“At a Time Like This”
29.05.2020
(Now available on bandcamp here)

“At a Time Like This” was written a couple of weeks ago during lockdown in Madrid and published as a live video on social networks by Garrett. After a suggestion by film maker Peter Domankievicz to make a video for the song highlighting people’s experiences during this time we each set about to record something at home, based around Garrett’s guitar and vocal. Robbie added a bodhrán percussion track, Dave some mandolin and Howard a string arrangement and flugelhorn track. Strings were recorded in the UK by Chris and Adrienne. The mix was done by Germán Gutiérrez at Playground Studios and we’re grateful to him for his time and energy. We’re thrilled with the results and hope you enjoy it too.

Lyrics

At a Time Like This

How do I tell you I love you
At a time like this
How do I hold you and keep you safe
At a time like this
How does anyone see the light
And make it through the night

How do I help you to feel all right
At a time like this
So just come and hold me tight
At a time like this
How does anyone make sense of it
In a world like this

How do I shelter you form the rain
At a time like this
Give you hope and share your pain
At a time like this
How does anyone deal with what they’ve been thrown
So make this love your home

Please stay safe, stay at home if you can, care for your loved ones, support the vulnerable in our society and we’ll see you on the other side. Much love from us all.

 

TRACK DOGS

Sun-shiny songs thriving on dark themes behind irresistible rhythms

Fire on The Rails sparks kinetic energy, just as the title promises, reeling out ten high-octane tracks with slick production and a sizzling pulse.
***** Bryony Hegarty, R2 Magazine

“Fire on the Rails” continues where “Kansas City Out Groove” left off; packed with invention, unusual textures, hooks and memorable melodies.”
**** Allan McKay, Musicriot.co.uk

Some of the most addictive folk melodies of the decade.”
“A wholesome and electrifying act, Track Dogs change the face of music with their vibrant and invigorating songs to produce an album that is the best way to start 2020.”
The upbeat melodies that Track Dogs bring to life in this album is a fresh and beautiful take on the world
Joe Knipe, Atree.co.uk

“Fire On The Rails bounces between the poles of pop and folk with trumpets and strings aplenty…this music, indeed, goes “forward in all directions”.”
Bill Golembeski, Folking.com

“Track Dogs’ infectious fusion of folk and Americana is captured at its inventive best here as this multi-national quartet deliver life enhancing ditties…”

What they say about our shows:

“…real festival show-stealer.”
Ken Brown, Square Roots Promotions

“A wonderful sound that has the crowd literally dancing in the aisles…with glorious four part harmonies they sound like a gritty Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.”
Paul Windsor, The Portsmouth News

“Track Dogs were the hit of Rochester Sweeps Festival 2016. Their close harmonies, instrumentation but above all, interaction with the audience, proved a winner.”
Doug Hudson, Director Rochester Sweeps

“Track Dogs played 2 shows at Vantastival 2016 and both were highlights of the weekend. Their unique show around 1 mic was perfect for the atmospheric smaller stage with their on-point vocal harmonies and rhythmic tribal beat. Their show as headline act for our larger stage was one of the biggest audiences of the weekend and left everyone in no doubt that this is a very very special band.”
Mark Staunton, Vantastival Festival Director

“In a battle of the stages, Track Dogs were up against festival headliner Badly Drawn Boy‬. Wonderfully unfazed by this, the band drew one of the biggest crowds of the weekend to the GoldenPlec Stage, cheery, Spanish-tinged acoustic proving a hit with a crowd that wanted to dance.”
Vantastival, Goldenplec.com

PRESS

“Kansas City Out Groove is an album brimming with confident and accomplished musicianship, first-rate vocal performances, and an abundant, utterly infectious, relish of the music itself.” Folkradio.co.uk

“…the quartet serve up a south of the border fiesta exuberance that defies you not to stomp the heels and play air castanets…the groove is most definitely on.”
Fatea Magazine

“This band turned out to be a total discovery, with vocal harmonies on a par with groups like Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, America or the most melodic style of, for example, the Eagles mixed in with the graceful irreverence of The Pogues‬.”
Renacer Eléctrico Music Magazine, Spain

“The antidote to a bad day”
Maverick, UK ****

“It’s the music as a whole that shines brightest of all”
