A Giant Dog -- Toy

“Get Away” by A Giant Dog

A Giant Dog lands in the SOMETHINGGOOD Song of the Day two-timer club with the opening track from Toy — the Austin quintet’s latest (and greatest) record, bestowed upon us yesterday.

The band is known for a scuzzy, oversexed brand of punk rock, which makes today’s featured song — the catchy, breezy sing-along “Get Away” — an extremely pleasant surprise. It has a timeless 1960s garage sound with A Giant Dog’s two vocalists, Sabrina Ellis and Andrew Cashen, harmonizing wonderfully on “Get Away’s” winding song-long chorus.

I’ve been excited to hear this one in full since randomly hearing a 30-second preview on iTunes months ago. It didn’t disappoint. Listen below, and as always, let us know what you think via Twitter.
