15/02/2012 | Dog Is Dead – Borderline, London

Nearing the end of a mammoth UK tour, Nottingham band Dog Is Dead brought the party to London on Thursday night to a very animated crowd. Danish band The Rumour Said Fire were the first support and although the venue was only half full, the band’s melodic indie folk music went down well and proved they might be in for a promising reception in the UK, especially since their debut album, The Arrogant, is out soon. Electronic band Another’s Blood followed but their set was punctuated by sound problems and a late start and their atmospheric sounds couldn’t quite match the upbeat buzz that The Rumour Said Fire had created.

Running fifteen minutes late, Dog Is Dead finally graced the stage to a rapturous crowd. Beginning with River Jordan, the audience were soon singing along with lead singer Robert Milton. Although not in their home town, their appeared to be many die hard fans making their presence known in the small venue, singing along to every song and heckling for songs that even the band declared were too old to play anymore.

Fan favourites such as Young went down a storm with the whole room echoing the band’s chorus of  “Hold your breath and count to ten, we’re losing touch, we’re losing friends…” Announcing they were about to play a new song for only the second time, the anticipation in the room lifted. Yet although the untitled track sounded great live, there were sound problems once again with bassist/saxophonist Trev’s bass amp breaking.

However, the Nottingham five piece didn’t let this ruin the night and Milton engaged with the crowd about the support bands while a technician helped to fix the problem. Base back in tact, they went straight into brand new single Two Devils, which, with its full band harmonies, was a slower song to end the successful main set on.  Coming back on for the encore, they launched into Teenage Daughter before getting the saxophone out again to end on their most well known song, Glockenspiel Song.

The atmosphere at this point was crazy with the whole audience dancing along and one fan jumping on stage and singing in Trev’s microphone before he got removed from the stage. Keyboardist Joss Van Wilder then attempted a stage dive but the crowd wasn’t packed in enough to pull it off so he just joined the dancing instead.  Tonight’s gig showed that Dog Is Dead have the songs and live ability to go a lot further in music and having recently gained many new fans from supporting Bombay Bicycle Club, hopefully they’ll start to get the great recognition they deserve.
