POSSESSING a visceral and entirely mesmerisng sound, Dolomite Minor have taken heed of the blues rock that came before them in order to put their own unique slant on the genre. Former touring partners with Glasgow’s own Baby Strange, the two piece are preparing to venture back up North in a matter of weeks to support Jesse Hughes’ Eagles Of Death Metal. An act that it’d most certainly be worth your while heading to the venue early for, they’ve unveiled the wild ‘Girl Of Gold’, taken from their forthcoming EP of the same name.
Occupying a rarely populated space between Band Of Skulls, Queens Of The Stone Age and the unorthodox and coarse expeditions of the late Rory Gallagher, ‘Girl Of Gold’ is as unapologetic in its murkiness as any rock ‘n’ roll track you’re likely to hear this year. Flitting between composed and animated in his vocal delivery, Joe Grimshaw’s incredible vocals are complimented by the sheer ferocity of the instrumentation that conjoins it; laden with oppressive riffs and equally pungent percussion.
Dolomite Minor’s Girl Of Gold EP will surface on the 15th June 2015 via Ignition, with the two days that follow its release constituting their time in the UK with Eagles Of Death Metal at Glasgow’s The Garage and London’s Koko respectively.
