Croatian Dead Dog Summer is a post-hardcore band from Čakovec formed in late 2020 and “A Place Of Someday” is their second single from the upcoming album that is planned to be released in spring of 2022 as digital and vinyl.
Band was formed last year but the whole idea of new songs and new band was in their heads for a long time, as members of the band were active in the scene during first decade of the 00-ies playing in bands like Nikad, The Farewell Reason, Senata Fox, Implicite and many others. Band members are: Igor Bistrović (guitars/vocals), Krešo Zerjav (bass, vocals) and Boris Strahija (drums).
“A Place Of Someday is a song about procrastination, this band was something I procrastinate for a long time, I was writing music, recording, playing music for a long time in my home studio and was always thinking, when I do that, then I will play in a band, I will form a band when I finish that etc. So A Place Of Someday is a place where you will never be if you don’t start today and start by your self, nobody will do nothing for you, nobody will come and save you so that is why we started this band during the pandemic and lockdown in Croatia.” says Igor Bistrović.
When we try to describe the music of Dead Dog Summer it would be easiest to say it is some kind of hardcore that was played in late 90-ies (they used to call it emo or screamo those days). Their sound is a combination of sparkly and heavy guitars, screaming and singing vocals and tight performance of rhythm section.
