Dags! will plunge you into a shimmering emotive whirlpool

The European mainland is often an undervalued treasure trove for new artists in my personal opinion. One of the shiniest gems in this collection is a trio from Milan, Italy who swim graciously and earnestly in emotive melodiousness. This group are called Dags! and they require your attention. Featuring ex members of emo punks Verme (who you should also check out), the band deliver a refreshing, shimmering style of math-tinged emo/indie rock which will suck you into a whirlpool of sentimentality. Listen to their 2016 debut album ‘Snowed In / Stormed Out’ and go see them on their UK tour this week with football, etc. at the following shows.

04 BRIGHTON The Hope & Ruin
06 GLASGOW Broadcast
