PUPPY TO BARK AT DESERTFEST 2018!
London's Puppy are coming to Camden this May to prove that their bite and their bark are both to be reckoned with.
With an approach first and foremost defined in classic songwriting - perhaps more so than any other band on the Desertfest bill so far - the trio that is Puppy bring something a little different to Desertfest.
Hints of Smashing Pumpkins flow through the measured sound of Puppy, who don't forego heavier tones in their music, but they certainly don't allow themselves to be dictated by a necessity to shoehorn meaty riffs. Where Puppy do hit the heavy though, as evidenced by their track 'The Great Beyond', they show they can shred with the best of them, issuing a flawless solo to bridge together the single. More followed with 2016's Vol. II EP, with opener 'Entombed' offering up a meaty opening hook that grabs you straight in for the full album.
So, make sure you're a good dog and catch Puppy at Desertfest 2018.
