‘Born In Love’ is the new single from Track Dogs, the Madrid based band featuring 2 Irish, 1 American and 1 UK musician. Taken from their new album ‘Kansas City Out Groove’ which came out in April, ‘Born In Love’ displays the band’s distinct combination of harmonies, trumpet and cajón which has seen them winning fans so far this year at Costa Del Folk in Ibiza, on festival stages across the UK and at Trafalgar Square, London where they performed on St Patrick’s Day.
In August, Track Dogs will tour Ireland – starting on 25th August at the Bridge Bar, Ramelton, Co Donegal, then they play the Ukulele Hooley, Dun Laoghaire on 26th, followed by 28th August at White Horse Sessions in Lahinch. On 30th August they headline the Sugar Club in Dublin, followed by an appearance at Electric Picnic’s Salty Dog Stage at 8pm on 31st August and on 1st September they will end the tour at First Fruits Arts Centre in Watergrasshill, Co Cork.
‘Kansas City Out Groove’ is their 4th album to date and it features the band’s striking line-up of 4-part harmonies, acoustic guitar, ukulele and bass alongside cajón and trumpet with banjo and mandolin in the mix too. The new album is a progression in their sound to a more robust Latin, ‘south-of-the-border’ & Americana feel – “This is something we’ve almost unconsciously being moving towards for some years. Living in Spain and being surrounded by such a richness in musical diversity eventually seeps under the skin.”. The album is available on all streaming outlets & trackdogsmusic.com
‘Kansas City Out Groove’ was recorded in Madrid at Playground Studios on an analog Studer A80, originally used in Abbey Road in the 1970’s on sessions for Pink Floyd and The Beatles. Working with co-producer and Latin Grammy nominee Germán Gutiérrez, Track Dogs have finally achieved the sound they’ve spend 10 years evolving.
