Fat Dog

"All The Same" (Domino)

Contact Jessica Linker, Ahmad Asani about Fat Dog

South London-based Fat Dog have quickly made a name for themselves in the UK as “2023’s wildest live band” (NME) on the strength of their “manically riotous and joyous” (BBC 6 Music) live show supporting acts including Viagra Boys, Shame and Yard Act and playing their own headline gigs. Last summer, via Domino Records, they released debut single “King of the Slugs,” hailed by Clash as “a ridiculous seven-minute journey through sound . . . Utterly remarkable.” Today, the British five-piece return with the antidotal follow up, “All The Same,” and an accompanying video. Additionally, they announce they’ll make their US debut this spring playing SXSW, New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Their next hometown show will be a headline gig in April at the 1500-capacity Electric Brixton, a sign of the genuine excitement growing around this band.

 

Co-produced by Fat Dog frontman Joe Love and James Ford, “All The Same” is propulsive and galvanizing, underpinned by orchestra hits and eagle noises as it races along to a dramatic conclusion in under three minutes. Fat Dog hint to the song’s narrative, suggesting: “What if you could turn the clock back and make a change? Just a single, well-placed kick, that perhaps could change the whole course of your life. Perhaps the party never has to stop?” The song’s video is a twisted, absurdist tale of time travel and fatherhood directed by Dylan Coates and starring Neil Bell (Dune, Andor).
