Baxter Dury - I'm Not Your Dog Review

@baxterdury , son of the great Ian Dury released an album this year called The Night Chancers, and there’s a song on that I can’t get out of my head. I’m Not Your Dog. ⁣

I just need to point out how Baxter sounds so much like his dad, it’s almost a continuation of Ian’s work in some aspect, having that creative, cockney poetic spoken word, that creates a very dull /introspective outlook, whilst dark synthesizers pulse through the song being carried by a short string section.⁣

The song feels claustrophobic, but gives itself a tonne of space. Baxters lyrical musings here can be seen as a criticism to the way people behave on social media. ⁣

“I'm not your fucking friend⁣

Trying to be though⁣

Trying to feel it⁣

Trying to be it⁣

Ce n'est pas mon problème⁣

Je ne suis pas ton chien⁣

I’ve been following you everywhere⁣

Some people like to show⁣

Some people like to watch⁣

I watch a bit too much⁣

You show too much⁣

Ce n'est pas mon problème⁣

Je ne suis pas ton chien”⁣

Take a listen to this track and let me know what you think.⁣
