Broken Dog : They were real

Do you believe in [a]Broken Dog[/a]? Reach out for their single and your hand passes straight through it with a Ghost-like whoosh.

Songs

that aren't so much written as swept up from the corners of their house, singer Martine whispering like an astral projection,

a

sense of imminent vanishing - this is a band who never need to open doors before they walk through them.





'They Were Real' is another ethereal beauty, possible evidence of a most supernatural phenomenon where Fleetwood Mac and Smog met strangely in a dark tunnel one night. Still, the slight

air

of indie feyness ensures their reality.





Every time a church bell rings, another angel gets his wings. [a]Broken Dog[/a] probably just shed a tear over, y'know, life's unutterable transient sadness.
