Out of the mouths of infants comes three chords and the truth. It might be unfair to continually rub the ages of Dog Party in their noses (guitarist Gwendolyn is 17 and drummer Lucy is 15) but it's impossible not to mention because their third album, Lost Control is such an accomplished recording. Also, it frickin' rocks.Lost Control is based in classic American punk.
The Giles sisters have been making peppy pop-punk music together as Dog Party since they were little kids. Now guitarist Gwendolyn is 17 and drummer Lucy is 14 and their music has taken a nice leap from enthusiastic and fun to something a little louder, a little tighter, and a lot more exciting. The duo's second album, Lost Control, is their first for a bigger label, Asian Man, and it's produced by Sacramento punk mainstay Chris Woodhouse.
At 17 and 15, Gwendolyn and Lucy Giles are already so tough. I don’t want to say they’re wise beyond their years, because a lot of wisdom can be gleaned in 17. Having played together as Dog Party since middle school, the sister duo have moved past the lighthearted romps of their first full-length, P.A.R.T.Y All Night, on their third official release.
