After being exposed to a bevy of multicultural influences over his formative traveling years, Santa Cruz songwriter Kai Killion settled down with two goals in mind: study history and make killer music. Under the name Getaway Dogs, Killion’s solo project quickly blossomed into a group endeavor, with a wide array of musicians contributing to its “cushy bedroom psychedelic bossa nova” genre-fluid sound.
Now performing as a trio, Getaway Dogs fetched plenty of well-deserved praise for their 2016 debut album Lost In The Ebb. Lost In The Ebb recently enjoyed a reissue along with the release of its faithful companion, the Paper Soul II EP, featuring two re-recorded songs that hound the band’s live energy and barks it right into your headphones. For the uninitiated, you can put a collar on Getaway Dogs right now with the free download of “Excuses/Opinions II”!
