A lot of people love music. A lot of musicians love music, despite it being their job. After all, how many bin men love black bags? How many salesmen love their target? For musicians, work means another day in the studio, another set of A&R men to make happy, another day knowing you’ve sold your soul for a strap-on! Working in music is poisonous. Yet a lot of musicians love music anyway.
But what if music loves you?
Looking back – and forward – at The Black Dog, that’s the feeling you get: The beauty, and sophistication, of The Black Dog’s work doesn’t come from their being music lovers who are really good at making tracks. It comes from music itself loving them, making them an outlet for itself. That’s why The Black Dog don’t play industry games. They don’t need to.
