When the world went into lockdown earlier this year Matt Mays took the opportunity to challenge himself as a songwriter, musician and producer. His album Dog City was written from the perspective of a rescue dog and recorded in a makeshift studio in Mays’ garage. On May 17th, Mays uploaded Dog City to Bandcamp. On August 28th, Sonic Records/Warner Music Canada released the mastered album to digital music services worldwide and the vinyl LP was released this past week.
The focus track for the album is “Dan N’ Shaniqua,” a light, uptempo song about a rescue dog on a journey to meet it’s new parents for the first time.
