Exclusive Premiere on Rock At Night – Thursday, June 16, 2022 – Worldwide streaming on June 17, 2022 – “Misanthropology”-Westergaard Records
Velcro Dog is the solo project of Norwegian musician and songwriter Tony Gonzalez (Barren Womb, Oma Desala, Twin Serpent, Dårli Te Beins). Born from an incessant need to deal with both old and new ghosts, Velcro Dog creeps along the darkest corners of the folk, americana and country traditions, carving out a sound that may perhaps best be labeled as fjord noir.
Rock At Night says: Filmed with color, texture, and absurd, quirky, or even grotesque images of green slime, body parts, Billy Bob teeth–you name it. It’s the seedy side of life. The characters are giving the “OK” hand gesture symbol throughout.
“Misanthropology” blends a rhythmic acoustic guitar, understated vocals, twangy banjo, and some percussion into a tale of drinking one’s troubles away. The tone is melancholy yet humorous and dark. In the middle of the tale, a spaghetti western whistle comes out of nowhere. The song is really unique and imaginative. It will definitely appeal to fans of Amigo the Devil.
