‘Dogs Die In Hot Cars’ are part Ska, Part 80’s pop, part MOR and causing a stir in the press. They have a sound that sits uneasily between The Specials, Squeeze and Spandau Ballet. “I Love You ‘Cause I Have To” rolls along pleasantly but doesn’t really ever get going. The B-side, which shares it’s title with their new album (‘Please Describe Yourself’ out 12 July), is a more jangly affair that is so low key that it is forgotten as soon as it ends.
