A sound consisting a potent blend of indie rock, Tropicália, and soul, Getaway Dogs is the brainchild of Brazilian American musician Kai Killion. It is perhaps conveyed best in the self-coined genre "Cushy Bedroom Psychedelic Bossanova & Dreamsurf." There exists a symbiosis between these different elements, a unique dreamscape rooted at its rawest form in Killion's songwriting. Based in Santa Cruz, California, the music reflects its environment; coastal, diverse, and unpredictable. Getaway Dogs have made a name for themselves in the Santa Cruz and greater Bay Area music scene, having shared the stage with notable acts such as The Mattson 2, Durand Jones & The Indications, & Gabriella Cohen. This Fall the band is proud to release their second and most refined album, BELONG.
This is the soundtrack to a lush, summer dream: A bluesy, rosey, jazzy, and fruitful escape through music. Hypnotic vocal harmonies and swirling guitars, entrancing drum beats and slippery keyboards: All these and more play into Getaway Dogs’ latest fantasia, BELONG. Unifying elements of psychedelic surf-rock, indie, folk, soul and Tropicália, Getaway Dogs dive deeper into the hidden caves of musical discovery, embracing the vastness without going adrift. Each song conveys its own particular feeling as honest, introspective lyrics inhabit the atmosphere created by layers of influence. The album title calls the listener in to feel at home in the dreamscape, and to hold space for those who feel overwhelmed by the current state of the world, it calls us into a space "where we can belong."
