Vibrant Dutch four-piece Banji impressed with their sugar-rush of a debut single 'Listen' back in November; now returning with its follow-up, 'Dogbreath', the band look set to turn more heads than ever before.


A slightly more laidback effort than its predecessor, 'Dogbreath' finds Banji considering the consequences of one's own actions via electrifying guitar lines and a groove heavily reminiscent of Superorganism. Vocalist Morris Brandt elaborates: “The chorus was inspired by stumbling across the word 'Dogbreath' in the notes app on my phone (I think my girlfriend put it there??). I recorded the hook with this word in mind, and the rest of the lyrics just fell out. I wanted toencapsulate a type of regret. One that is not rooted in truth, but in appearing truthful.Feeling guilt-ridden about your actions, and wishing it would have gone another way, but failing to accept true consequence. Coming up with excuses instead of dealing with it. Like you can't just fix you breath with a piece of gum, you can't change the situation you put yourself in that easily.
