I’ve promised to feature as many Irish creatives and musicians as possible for as long as The London Ear is still on RTE. This week, I decided to kick that off by chatting to Andrew Brennan from Pursued by Dogs

In Conversation with Andrew from Pursued by Dogs

As I said on air, Pursued by Dogs have consistently made high-quality music, that I’ve always enjoyed. Swap Dimensions from their debut album is a banger!

Over the past few months, the band have released a string of tracks and I chat to Andrew about the subtle but important changes in approach the band have taken with their new music. Also the band are playing their first show since 2019 on December 8 in Bello Bar in Dublin. Grab your tickets here.
