Dott are from Galway, Ireland and play shiny, harmony-driven garage pop. Their music drips with luscious harmonies, fuzzy guitars and addictive feel-good pop melodies.

Their eagerly awaited debut album "Swoon" was released on December 3rd 2013 on Graveface Records US to critical acclaim and their debut EP Button was released in 2013 on 7" on Graveface Records US and in 2012 on the Popical Island Collective, Ireland.

Formed in 2012, Dott have been busy with tours across the USA, SXSW '14, CMJ '14 and appearances live on national television on the Late Late Show, at Electric Picnic, HWCH, Camden Crawl, Westport Festival and Indiependence. They have recorded live sessions for BreakThru Radio (NYC) 2FM Dan Hegarty, Arena RTE Radio 1, Ceol ar an Imeall TG4 and Community of Independents, DCTV.

Songs from Dott can be heard on stations such as NPR, USA, BBC Radio, Today FM, 2FM, RTE RADIO 1, RnaG, 98FM and Phantom Radio.
