Hey, tell us a bit about yourself.
We met in highschool, but it wasn’t until after uni when we moved in together that we began making music. Heartbroken or lost or a bit of both, the first weekend we just stayed in and wrote a bunch of songs that were more honestly naive than anything we’d done before. The concept of Dog Orchestra came about two years later though, when we moved to Berlin. It came to shape a more electronic based sound for us than before (as we’re both indie kids at heart). We’ve since moved back to Stockholm but Berlin is always present somewhere in the soundscapes.
Where did the new single come from?
It was a Sunday and we were hungover, sitting in our coal heated loft in Berlin feeling existential anxiety kicking in as per usual. Like many of ours songs it started as escapism. The songwriting process is a bit of a blur but we started out with that ominous bass line and then it grew from there.
Is there more content in the pipeline?
So much. We’re currently working through a bunch of tracks trying to figure out in what direction DO is heading. We’ve been going back and forth between putting together a pretty ambitious album to just focusing on individual tracks. Anything can happen.
What’s on the horizon for you?
Apart from catching up with five years of songwriting, we’re trying to schedule the right producer to set a date for our next release. There are a few gigs coming up, which is always crazy, but other than that we’re just playing it by ear and looking for new opportunities to collaborate with interesting people and evolve musically.
