Well its that time again... monday. Those things just don't go away do they? Just as soon as you get rid of one it seems like another is around the corner... heh. Anyway it is time for New Music Monday again like I promised. However, I am now calling it Cool Music Monday because I think that title is a bit more fitting. Some of the acts I may showcase in the future may not necessarily have new music out at the moment, but will definitely be worth showcasing. With that said... the group I want to talk about today is The Dirty Disco.
The Dirty Disco is an unsigned electro-pop/glam band from London with 5 members:
- Adam K. - Vocals
- Kyle Mackenzie - Electronics
- Olly Dexter - Bass
- Andrew Ignatius - Guitar
- Kyle Langley - Drums
Their sound is an intriguing mixture of electro pop and sleazy glam-rock, think Lady GaGa with balls. You'll hear elements of Dead or Alive, Thrill Kill Kult and Erasure in their latest single "White Room". They have an energy about the music that is exciting and their songwriting is solid and catchy. Their look is consistent with the Lady GaGa glam thang going on now, which is getting a bit overdone but they still manage to keep it somewhat interesting.
On their My Space page they list their influences as:
"For people who watch 'A Clock Work Orange' whilst listening to David Bowie, Prince, Depeche Mode, Gary Numan, The Knife, William Orbit, The Cure, Abba, Mirwais, Michael Jackson, Jefferson Airplane, Britney, Joni Mitchell, Madonna, Computer Club, Duran Duran..."
Well hell... no wonder I like them...!
The only problem I have with these guys at the moment is that I can listen to their music online but very little of it is available for sale or download. Three tracks to be exact. You can purchase their first single "Sista!" on iLike, you can grab a free download of "Rabbit Heart" on their website and you can find remixes of "White Room" on SoundCloud for download. I'm hoping they plan an official release soon, signed or unsigned. In the meantime here are some videos to nosh on while you're waiting. :)
