A sexy female fronted, five piece Toronto band, incorporating downtempo trip hop, indie alternative rock, dark atmospherics, hints of drum and bass and break beats, moody melodies, heartbreaking lyrics and sultry female vocals, UNDADOGG‘s sound is familiar, but refreshingly unique and difficult to forget. Formed in 1998, UNDADOGG is singer/lyricist Andrea Lucarelli, twin brothers Ruben-guitar, and Remi Miguez-drums, and keyboardist Christian Kada who have all been playing together since high school.
UNDADOGG have just been approved for a FACTOR demo grant and will hit the studio to record their new material very soon! The band plans to tour and shop the new disc to the Canadain, US and European markets.
Presently, UNDADOGG are gigging regularly, in and around Toronto, Montreal and surrounding cities. The bands current performance schedule is booked solid, with up to 3 shows per week. UNDADOGG’s live performance is definitely their strength, and always satisfies their ever-growing fan base. Appealing to an odd mismatch of trip hop fans, hip hoppers, Goths, indie rockers and even punks, UNDADOGG create a mood that sets them apart from the masses. Music lovers and critics are easily won over after seeing UNDADOGG perform: “They can pull off sexiness without being raunchy. They’re just plain cool.”- Manuela Spizziri, Chart Attack CMW Review, “sexy enough to seemingly be the audio equivalent of thigh high stockings.”-J-Sin, Smother Magazine. UNDADOGG recently played in front of a crowd of 500+ as part of Toronto Alternative Fashion Week. The band has also been featured live to air on CKLN 88.1FM radio, performing a live acoustic set and interview as part of the Dub and Beyond program numerous times this past year.
UNDADOGG can also accommodate to smaller, more intimate venues by playing stripped down and acoustic, incorporating upright bass, djembe, acoustic guitar, accordion and xylophone.
UNDADOGG have released 2 independent discs to date, “Ano De Dolor” (1999) and “Jinx” (2006). Both releases sold very well and continue to receive great support from college and Internet radio. Lead Singer Andrea has also just released a 3 song CD single collaberation entlted “Breathe“ with Toronto DJ duo Version Xcursion. The track debuted at #1 on CKLN’s electronic chart.
Over the years UNDADOGG have gained respect, credibility and established themselves as one of the few bands in Toronto doing something different. Playing the live circuit in a sea of punk, metal and rock, UNDADOGG’s music can’t help but stand out and get noticed.
