Following their critically acclaimed second album ‘One Hyde Park’, which was released earlier this year, The Dowling Poole has just released a new EP, featuring a brand new never heard before song ‘Miles Checks Out’. The EP also features bonus tracks ‘Saving It All For A Saturday’ and ‘Getting A Licence’ which were recorded live in Manchester on the band’s acoustic tour in 2015. Full electric versions of both bonus tracks feature on the groups debut album ‘Bleak Strategies’, which was released to high critical acclaim in 2014.
The EP is available exclusively on The Dowling Poole’s Bandcamp page. All three songs cost just 99 pence.
The Dowling Poole have just started an web shop, where you’ll find t-shirts, posters, physical CD’s and vinyls of the albums ‘Bleak Strategies’ and ‘One Hyde Park’, amongst various other items.
The group are playing live, supporting The Wildhearts at London’s 02 Forum on December 17th. Tickets here.
About The Dowling Poole
The Dowling Poole is formed by singer-songwriters and multi-instrumentalists Willie Dowling and Jon Poole. Their first album 'Bleak Strategies' was a Top 20 Indie album and with Mojo describing it as “A classic British rock album heavy on powerpop smarts 4/5”. Classic Rock magazine hailed the album as “one of the most gorgeously idiosyncratic records to emerge in years 9/10”; and their second album, which was released earlier this year, ‘One Hyde Park’ is just as beguiling.
Influenced by pop masters such as XTC, ELO, Blur, 10CC, The Kinks, The Beatles and more, The Dowling Poole – described by The Sun as “an awesome pairing 4.5/5”, have once more created an eclectic and contemporary sounding mix of semi-psychedelic pop, somehow quintessentially British-sounding, laced with harmonies and a multitude of influences from the best of 50 years of rock and popular music.
