Annie-Dog Dazzles With New Single ‘Fish’

She's prepping a new EP...

Dublin artist Annie-Dog has shared her curious new single ‘Fish’.

The songwriter takes her name from a Smashing Pumpkins deep cut, something Billy Corgan himself noted on social media. Annie-Dog blends indie pop tropes with an appetite for skewing these ideas into fresh, often surreal vignettes.

A new EP lands on July 3rd via Dance To The Radio, led by her latest single ‘Fish’. A song that contains some of her vivid hallmarks, its structure zips from side to side, never quite sitting in one place.

That said, Annie-Dog’s melodic flourishes keep you entranced, while the lyrics are a sardonic take on the old adage to singletons – “there’s plenty more fish in the sea…”

A look at the unfulfilling world of dating, she comments:

‘Fish’ is a song I wrote about a year ago. Being told that there are plenty of fish in the sea when going through a breakup or whatever always feels so ridiculous… because, I’m sure it is the case, but what has that got to do with me? Maybe I liked that one fish in particular. I won’t be happy with just any old codfish. That was the general idea when writing this song. The hook “there are so many fish in the sea- how could I need anyone but you now?” pretty much sums it all up.

I recorded, produced and mixed this track myself, as per. I used these old cigarette cards I came across years ago that have different types of fish on them as artwork for the track. They’re cool. They have facts about each fish on the back of the cards. I’m equal parts fascinated by and scared of the ocean, and all the creatures that lurk within. And also sometimes people.

Tune in now.
