Broken Dog - Harmonia

Broken Dog - Harmonia
Label: Tongue Master
Format: CD


Well-presented and packaged soft rock from long-serving North London duo Borken Dog, back with a fifth album

An interesting release here from Broken Dog. It’s a defiantly ‘indie’ record, but certainly has charms, not the least that it is very nicely packaged and presented. Always a good sign. If something is described as ‘background music’, it is often taken as a criticism. But there is something nice about music that you can put on, but which doesn’t distract you in any way. Of course, there is a place – a very special place – for music that demands one’s undivided attention, but music that can enhance the atmosphere of the room, especially when you are reading for example, that you can appreciate without procuring total involvement to, is very useful. 'Harmonia' achieves that liitle function nicely. Indeed, it is a very mellow, pretty album and makes the world feel a nicer place whilst it is played. It reminded me a lot of Saddle Creek’s Azure Ray, with the female vocals and delicate accompaniment. Broken Dog need some more engaging songs to be considered truly a complete band, and this album is probably a little samey to be considered great, but neverthesless a more than welcome contribution.
