Fat Dog – I am the King

Fat Dog – I am the King

Fat Dog, the South London quintet known for their audacious sound, has just released “I am the King,” a track from their debut album ‘WOOF.’ set to drop on September 6 via Domino Recording Co. Written in the toilets of a Wetherspoons pub in Forest Hill post-breakup, the song blends orchestral grandeur with synth-rock intensity, creating a poignant yet absurd narrative.

Frontman Joe Love channels both heartbreak and humor, delivering lines like, “And if you think I’m cryin’ for you / I ain’t cryin’ for you / I just watched Karate Kid II.” The song’s orchestral opening is reminiscent of Vangelis, merging seamlessly with Underworld-esque synths to build a slow-burning, ceremonial chant.

Produced by Joe Love with James Ford and Jimmy Robertson, the album reflects influences from Bicep, I.R.O.K, Kamasi Washington, and Little Big. “I am the King” follows previously released singles “Running,” “King of the Slugs,” and “All the Same,” all of which showcase the band’s dynamic range and dance-inducing energy.

Fat Dog’s music stands out for its refusal to be cerebral, opting instead for a visceral, danceable experience. Their unique approach is gaining traction, with a UK tour set to follow the album release, starting with a sold-out four-night residency at Nottingham’s Bodega and culminating in their largest headline show at London’s Islington Assembly Hall.

Dive into Fat Dog’s world, where heartbreak meets humor, and orchestral synth-rock reigns supreme.
