From the North Coast of New South Wales comes Alt-Country sensation Doot. With their roots in the wide open plains of Australia, paired with well-travelled ears, Doot deliver a sound that is both classic and original, familiar yet surprising, rocking and rootsy, heartfelt and feel-good. Doot is: Dave Irving (vocals and acoustic guitar), Paul Agar (pedal steel, electric guitar and backing vocals), Alan Brooker (bass), Scott Hills (drums). On their new self-titled EP, Doot distill the essence of the alt-country originals, taking inspiration from the ’60s and ’70s sounds of Gram Parsons, The Flying Burrito Brothers and The Byrds’ country-rock classic Sweetheart of the Rodeo.

WP doot-3The Doot EP is led by Worn Out Engine, a tale of love gone bad lightened by smart wordplay, sublime harmonies and a propulsive, hopeful melody. Recorded and mixed at Heaven Recording Studios in northern NSW, Doot was then mastered in New York by mastering legend Scott Hull. These are songs custom-made for echoing across a field at sunset, for making grown men cry into their beer and then booting ’em out at the other end with a smile on their face.

Meet Doot. One listen, and you’ll feel as though you’ve known this smartly-dressed four-piece all your life.

 

Get your Doot scootin’ from 2pm on Sunday at the Tyalgum Hotel
