Dog Race Drop New Single/Video "The Leader"

Bedford post punk/alt band Dog Race have dropped their new single “The Leader” alongside a video.

The song, produced by Ali Chant (Dry Cleaning, Sorry, Portishead) is out now via Fascination Street Records. Get it here.

Following their acclaimed debut single “Terror“, produced by Jessica Winter, the rising alternative band continued their steady build of quality over quantity with the follow-up “There’s A Mouse In My House”, and then the propulsive “It’s The Squeeze”

Formed by siblings Katie Healy (Vocals/Keys), and Jed Finkelstein (Drums) with James Kelly (Guitar), Dillon Willis (Keys), and Will Macnab (Bass), Dog Race evokes a sense of foreboding and mystique with its ethereal layers, they combine gothy post-punk, brittle indie-pop and cold wave to create a spectral sound that is increasingly distinctive as one of their own.

Of the song, lead singer Katie Healy says:

‘The Leader’ feels like the perfect continuation from ‘It’s The Squeeze’, building on our newly defined sound yet teasing how much more we have to offer. It sets its narrative around a protagonist who is thrown into inner turmoil when confronted with a fee to cross into the afterlife, convinced she had already paid her dues.”

The folk horror themed video, directed by Jed Finkelstein, finds Katie buried alive. Watch it now.
