Sun-shiny songs thriving on dark themes behind irresistible rhythms.
Comprised of 2 Irishmen, 1 Englishman and 1 American the band came together in 2011 to make their unique brand of acoustic music; a veritable 4×4 of voices and instruments identified for their dynamic fusion of styles including folk, latin, Americana & even some bluegrass.
The Madrid-based band whose name derives from the maintenance crews working the New York subway system released their fourth studio album “Kansas City Out groove” in March 2018.
Made up of two Irishmen (Dublin & Wicklow), an Englishman (Sheffield) and an American (Vermilion, Ohio), “Kansas City Out Groove”is inspired in part by their recent career-changing experiences at the Folk Alliance festival in Kansas City in early 2017. The album is a mix of all that makes the Track Dogs sound so special, in healthy doses of Americana, Latin & Folk.
Also appearing on the album is the Nashville-based virtuoso bluegrass band “The Barefoot Movement” who the band met on their US trip.
But don’t just take our word for it. Here’s what they’re saying about “KANSAS CITY OUT GROOVE”
“…genre-busting acoustic music built around folk, Americana and bluegrass…an album that will delight established fans and gain them plenty of new ones” RNR, magazine July 2018, UK
“…based in Madrid and with instruments that include cajon, banjo, ukulele, mandolin and trumpet and, rather obviously Spanish guitar, the quartet serve up a south of the border fiesta exuberance that defies you not to stomp the heels and play air castanets….the groove is most definitely on.” Fatea Magazine, UK
“There’s a rare combination of four great players who also have superb voices, creating stunning individual vocal performances and the almost inevitable perfect harmonies…The playing is outstanding, the harmonies are superb and it’s joyful throughout; just give it a listen.” Music Riot, June 2018, UK
