FEROCIOUS DOG - SINGLE REVIEW

Ferocious Dog - Slow Motion Suicide 
Ferocious Dog - Slow Motion Suicide

Release Date: Out Now

You would be forgiven for thinking that a song called 'Slow Motion Suicide' was a Radiohead-esque anthem to misery full of sighed lyrics and long, drawn-out notes. Nottingham combo Ferocious Dog, however, don't do misery or introspection, instead they do anger, rage and defiance with a side portion of mischief. Menacingly chugging guitars and clear-as-day vocals get things going before the thud of a bass drum joins in and then the story unfolds of a man fallen on hard times despite a normal childhood and upbringing. It's an all too common story projected on to a backdrop of music inspired by the likes of Levellers, the Pogues and Mad Dog McRae. The fiddles join in and before long you can hear this being sung in an old Irish pub on a street corner in London as the most boisterous of all wakes kicks off around a pool table. Feisty and rowdy but never miserable and always a lot of fun.
