Plain Dog is a band of many genres. We all met in Brooklyn, NY. We all play music,

Plain Dog are a Brooklyn band who play a scuzzy, psych-laced strain of rock music. Built on the founding duo of guitarist/vocalist Russell Efros and guitarist Willie Almack, the band has undergone a few line-up changes as they’ve gigged around New York since their 2015 formation, most recently adding Ian Devaney — frontman of recent Band To Watch Nation Of Language on bass. Over the course of these early years and one EP, they moved from grungy garage rock roots to a more layered, washed-out sound. Today, their music’s DNA is equal parts ’80s and ’90s American indie and the blearier corners of Britpop and its immediate predecessors, bringing to mind the mix a band like Yuck was messing around with at the beginning of the decade.

The group is now gearing up to release their sophomore EP tomorrow, entitled All My Friends. You may have stumbled across some of its songs already: “Cherry Cola” was featured in an episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and “Girl Named Phil” was included on Glassnote Records’ recent Noteworthy 01 Compilation. On this EP, Efros wanted to inject a bit more shoegaze qualities into their sound, leading to songs that toe the line between rough-hewn and dreamy.
