Dog Bite is the project of Atlanta-based artist Phil Jones. Jones toured with Washed Out as keyboardist for them, and while on the road, he picked up an acoustic guitar. This lead to him transforming Dog Bite from a sampling based solo project into lo-fi garage band. His live outfit includes Woody Shortridge (bass), Stephen Luscre (guitar), William Fussell (guitar), and Cameron Gardner (drums).
“Would Be” is an experimental indie rock song which blends the lines of shoegaze and lo-fi garage rock. Its fuzzy guitar play mixes great with low-tuned vocals. The track was released as part of split seven inch with Toro Y Moi, whom Jones and his band will be touring North America with this winter (check the dates here).
Dog Bite’s debut album, Velvet Changes, is due February 5, 2013 on Carpark Records; grab a pre-order here.
