Breakout single ‘Nothing To Do’ blasted the Doogs into the ears of fans Australia wide. Receiving major airplay from triple j and triple j unearthed: including being invited to play Groovin The Moo in Bunbury as well as being picked as unearthed Feature Artist that month, the break out single gained comparisons to Skegss, Wavves, Hockey Dad, and Dune Rats, and also led them to play some of their biggest shows so far.
The success of ‘Nothing To Do’packed out the rooms of their first ever East Coast tour, playing to hundreds of kids in Brisbane, Melbourne, Gold Coast, Adelaide, Wollongong, and Perth. It also led to signing with Adam Montgomery at recently announced new booking agency Four Tone Artists (along with A. Swayze & The Ghosts, Bec Sandridge, Gold Class, The Gooch Palms, IV League, Slowly Slowly), and a sponsorship from major surf brand Rusty. Not bad for a first tour.
They then released follow up single ‘So Dumb’ before heading off on a sold-out Cap city Australian tour supporting WA pals Tired Lion. Playing to packed out sweaty crowds every night, the shows proved The Doogs were more than just a party band here to have a good time. They mean business. Although, they did give themselves tattoos in the green room… but that’s a different story.
They also got the noble nod of “most hit unearthed profiles of 2018” – sharing the list with G Flip, Ruby Fields, Slowly Slowly, CLEWS, and Didirri – and then premiered the video for ‘So Dumb’ on triple j unearthed and tallied up an impressive 50k views along with reviews such as “THE perfect track for summer” (Claire Mooney, triple j unearthed).
Latest single ‘Want That’ is a track about being aware of different things happening in your life, or at work, or in relationships that aren’t going how you want them to, but not doing anything to change it. The laid-back introspective punk-rock jam is a melodic ode to putting things off. If you’re going to procrastinate, you might as well head bang while you wait.
The Doogs are shaping up to be a major player in the surf-rock movement in Australia, jump aboard the ground swell of fun that seems to be following them. Don’t kook it.
“Catchy as all hell, combining all the best ingredients of tasty pop-punk – catchy verses, great melodies and a chorus you can bang your head to” – Life Without Andy
“Good Doogs are bringing the fuzzy vibes from the west coast of the US to the west coast of AUS” – triple j
“It’s one of my favourite tracks of 2018. If you like Skegss, Hockey Dad and Wavves then crack into this.” – Dave Ruby Howe (triple j unearthed)
“slacker rock never sounded so slick! great new track from the Perth trio” – Nick Findlay (triple j)
“their music is a little less abrasive than their forefathers, with a knack for song writing that is relatable beyond just talkin’ about bongs and beers. There’s plenty of that to be sure, but their carefree, surf-rock attitude lacks a bit of polish in a way that’s charming without being annoying.” – Pilerats (18 artists to watch in 2018)
“Another massive favourite. This one show’s off a bit of a different side which I love. There’s a lot more depth. Your best yet.” – Claire Mooney (triple j unearthed)
