Dog’s simplistic moniker may lead you to believing that his music is as simple and straightforward as his stage name when in reality his music is far more complex than his title leads on. His latest project Monster is a soul-bearing account of the emotional turmoil he goes through and offers a glimpse into his afflicted mind, offering solace for any of his listeners in a similarly negative situation. His lyrics resonate with his listeners on a personal level and his personality shines through each track through both his words and his vocals. His grim worldview is both tragically relatable and indicative of the place we are in society as the world becomes more and more ominous and happiness seems increasingly fleeting. Dog perfectly blends a nonchalance with a fierce sense of angst that shows his irreverence for the art world’s strict confines and emphasis on marketing while relating to the feelings of the youth that the art is meant to resonate with.
