GROWING YOUNG (Ep) by Dirty Thrills
(Independent Release)

Dirty Thrills' debut Ep, 'Growing Young' is a good reminder of what rock and roll is all about. It's loud, it's catchy and it's not forced or overshadowed by overly complex lyrics or arrangements. The band is comprised of Louis James (Lead Vocals), Jack Fawdry (Guitar), Aaron Plows (Bass) and Steve Corrigan (Drums) The straightforward, purist rock music and choruses on the band's four song Ep are hard not to admire, whether or not you're a fan of classic or Southern rock. Dirty Thrills are an amazing, up-and-coming London-based Rock ‘n’ Roll quartet. Fronted by the son of Moody Blues singer Nicky James. The Dirty Thrills are single-handedly bringing back 100% real rock n roll, while leaving a contemporary mark. The band's sound is a mix of Southern rock, with a more neo-classic rock vibe, adopting a tough, Stonesy swagger. Dirty Thrills manages to play on the most rewarding traits of classic rock while still sounding modern. The Ep kicks off in full force with "Shivers" the catchiest and most accessible song, which is part blues rock grind, part New York glam. The title track, "Growing Young" and "You're In Trouble Now" are another highlights, combining a hard-edged backdrop with an upbeat chorus. Lead singer Louis James's soulful voice is perfect for the type of down-and-dirty, back-to-basics rock showcased on these tracks. It is just as suited to the power slow grind of "Drunken Words", which provides a refreshing change of pace. The entire band's chemistry is apparent, as its members work together perfectly to create a sound that is dynamic and tight, making Dirty Thrills a refreshing alternative to often self-obsessed popular and indie rock music of today. - Highly Recommended
