After lineup adjustments, Dog Day settled into life as a two-piece of Seth Smith and Nancy Urich, but the sound doesn’t lack for the reduced size. Opening on the lush, heavy “Daydream,” it’s still the same Dog Day. “Part Girl” has mournful verses paired with a catchy chorus that will stick in your head for days. “Somebody” sounds like a gothic ukulele tune with raw-sounding vocals. The rhythms are as solid as ever, Urich’s vocals particularly spooky. Deformer brings Dog Day gracefully out of breakup rumours and the country hideout where the album came together, maintaining the band’s place at the forefront of Halifax’s scene.
