We review the new single from Dog Bone – Always around

Always Around’ is the brand-new single from Portuguese Alt-Band ‘Dog Bone’ and is available to stream now on Spotify and other streaming platforms.

A sleepy, soulful tune, Always Around is 20 years in the making. After taking a hiatus to pursue individual projects, founding members Pedro and Paulo have reunited to write new Dog Bone tunes, and revisit the old ones.

A gentle, stripped back version of the original, the remastered ‘I’m Around’ starts off a gentle, melodic acoustic guitar.

Paired with its poetic lyrics and sweet soulful vocals this song begins as your musical equivalent of your first Hot Chocolate on the Christmas markets.

Yet through the bridge and outro, it grows into an uplifting classic rock sound with whispers of influence from artists like Springsteen with a dash of Dylan.

The track feels warm and comforting with a mixture of styles that make it difficult to place in time but I guess that is the sheer beauty of hearing music by a band who have worked together for such a long time.
