Making my way through lots of new releases today accompanied by the feeling that music at times feels like it’s going backwards – the sounds, the arrangements and god forbid that the words ever change – then this from Dirtybird plays sparking the excitement of curiosity. Dotted Line, pulses with a feverish electricity creating its own path as it drives forward combining punctuating notes alongside brutal drums. The more organic and for me better, Yes Sir follows with likewise pounding beats but this time with added soulfulness in the shape of spine-tingling pads, plus the voice of optimism compounding the message that music can aim over the horizon while not forgetting its roots.
Release: April 28
