River Jordan

Album: All Our Favourite Stories (2011)
  • Dog Is Dead is a five piece indie pop band from Nottingham, England. Three members of the band (frontman Rob Milton, Joss Harrison-Willder and Lawrence Cole) met at West Bridgford School. After picking up drummer Lawrence Libor at a party and Rob White at a rehearsal for The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe, they started performing live in 2008. Their debut single, "Glockenspiel Song," was released on June 7, 2010 and the band appeared in the closing scene of the fifth series of British television teen drama Skins, playing the song in a marquee, with the cast singing along.
  • This is Dog Is Dead's third single and Rob Milton told NME: "I guess that song is either about literally dumping girls in the river… or some sort of life metaphor about enjoying things for some time before moving on."
