There are few things in life as satisfying as repeating the line “Fuck your TV family” in time with Helen of Dog In The Snow on her new track ‘Child’. Part protest song, and part tongue-in-cheek observation; ‘Child’ sounds like a Handmaid’s Tale-meets-Bjork hybrid. Through measured synths and vocals, Helen “comes to terms with the mixed expectations of women’s roles in society”, and the accompanying video is reflective of the cold clinical nature forced domesticity often brings.
Dog In The Snow’s debut album Consume me will be released on October 20th, and Helen will be playing two live dates to celebrate. First up will be a free gig at The Waiting Room in London on October 25th, followed by a hometown show in Brighton on the 28th at The Basement. Watch the video for ‘Child’ below.
