A-Go-Go Is Pioneering Country Gone Rock

The Ohio-based band's latest release "Dressed Up" is a testament to their evolving range and talent that, in our opinion, continues to get it right every time.

Your most recent single “Dressed Up” carries a certain tone of nostalgia that we can’t help but be enchanted by. What was the creative process behind this single?

When I (Henry) wrote the song, I was listening to A LOT of The Velvet Underground. Also was really into power pop bands like Big Star and some of The Replacements mid-late 80s stuff. The main riff had been around for over a year, and it formed into one of our favorite songs to play live, so it felt natural to release it as a single.


Let’s pretend we’re diving into A-Go-Go history. What would you title this current chapter?


MEGA. SLAY.

We know the band partly renders tribute to garage rock. Are there any other hints of different genres or inspiration that make up your sound?


We had a bit of a hard time deciding what genre to label ourselves. We identify with the phrase “country gone rock” at the moment. We also liken ourselves to Roots Rock bands like The Bryds and The Band.


What’s next for the band? Any exciting projects or appearances for this next half of the year?


We’ve been focusing a lot of time on recording and plan to release one more double single before our debut EP, which will include two tracks called “Polly” and “Union Gate”. The EP will be available on cassette and might just include a bonus, previously unreleased track. To stay up to date check out our social media and streaming accounts.
