The EP will be officially released on the 23rd of May, and the launch gig will take place on May 24th in the Grand Social, Dublin.
These songs have grown out of a recent period of creative intensity, and their energy and sound give a strong sense of what can be expected of Ana Gog’s second album. This, for the first time, is a release that the band feel does justice to their live performance. The songs deal with various family-related themes, and themselves bear a relation even through their contrast, hence the title, “Resemblance”.
Having recently purchased a big van, the band will tour in Ireland and further afield over the summer months, and hope to release again later in 2014.
‘Music that hits you right between the ears’ - Jim Carroll, The Irish Times
‘A focus on composition and arrangements that might just set this band apart from the many other Irish bands’ - State
...big resonant drums and rich, thick bass, keys, highly strung guitars and warm vocals all arranged with feathersprung precision...’ - Harmless Noise
Ana Gog are an alternative rock group based in Dublin, Ireland. The band fuse separate instrumental passions with the highly evocative songs of lead singer Michael Gallen into a style which recalls the epic, progressive indie of Radiohead and the Arcade Fire, mixed with the more arcane, classical style of Owen Pallett, Nico Muhly or Jim O'Rourke. The band's widescreen music has seen them gig as far afield as India, and their nearly legendary versatility has led to gigs in a variety of unusual venues, from squats to churches to festival stages.
