Colleen Green - "I Wanna Be a Dog"

Colleen Green is one of the artist's Jeff introduced me to. I got sucked in by her cover of the Descendent's "Good Good Things," and was completely enamored with her ultra lo-fi style. In 2015 I originally rejected I Want to Grow Up since it had a slicker style, but came around and it has become an all time favorite for me.

In the past six years, Green has released a handful of EPs and singles, as well as a Blink 182 covers album, but she hasn't released a true album in that time. That all changes in September, and the first single off of that album is "I Wanna Be a Dog." The new song sees Green continue her glorious pop side with killer lo-fi guitars. The chorus borrows heavily from The Stooges' immortal "I Wanna be Your Dog," but sugarcoats it like if The Archies went punk. It also marks the second song we've covered this year about wishing you could live as a dog, which just proves how much of a nightmare 2020 was for everyone.

You can watch the video for "I Wanna Be a Dog" below. Cool is due out September 10 on Hardly Art Records. You can pre-order your copy here. For more on Colleen Green, check out the artist's website.
