Bands to Watch #68: Dirty Sweet

By on Tuesday, 13th January 2009 at 10:12 am

Dirty Sweet (side)Last year was quite refrshing for classic rock with the return of AC/DC, Airbourne punching above their weight and The Answer starting to really blossom but all this meant that Dirty Sweet were largely overlooked. The Californian five piece are right on the brink of dropping the support act tag strapped around their necks and I have a feeling they will be highly rated after their current tour.

If you love melodic vocals, inventive drum beats and mind splitting guitar riffs then these guys will be for you. The band are pros at cooking up a galloping track and “Baby Come Home” is already a big hit, but what’s exciting is that there already is a catalogue of other tunes that could follow it up.

“Born to Bleed” is a rock solid track and shows us, through awesome harmonies, that the guitar players know their stuff. The chorus is catchy and having been a fan for a while, the rate that Dirty Sweet have improved and grown is simply fenomenal. “You’ve Been Warned” and “Golden Sole” are also great listens and make the ingredients for a great album.

The boys are almost certain to meet a lot of fans in 2009 with their pure rock tone and fantastic sense of humour and I suppose you have to be quite good to support The Killers among other bands, but 2009 should see the band become a well polished act and I’m certain they have a great year ahead of them.
