Galway, Ireland's Dott are in NYC, playing a one-off show at Cake Shop tonight (7/9) with Melbourne, Australia's Rohypnotize, and locals The Hairs and Gondola. Not sure why Dott are in in America only playing one show but no need to look a gift horse in the mouth. This mostly female band (the drummer spent time in So Cow) describe themselves as "shiney, harmony driven garage pop" and that's pretty spot-on. Dott have some infectious tunes on their Button EP which you can stream below. "Leave Tonight" and "Let's Do It" are especially good.
All Dott tour dates (mostly in Ireland) are below, along with a video for "Let's Do It" and the EP stream.
