Watch List: Get Low Down And Dirty With Dirty Deep's Bluesy Rock'n'Roll
Music can certainly be a serious business, with many often searching to perfect eruditely informed instrumental intricacies in the service of providing sonic frameworks that complement the articulation of deeply esoteric emotional profundities. All well and good, no doubt, but sometimes nothing beats just cutting loose and embracing the basics with a passionate, 'rough-around-the-edges' abandon in the search for a good time. Embracing just such a notion with gusto, France's Dirty Deep thus recently made for quite a 'discovery-with-a-twist' when we came across their raucous energy of their unexpected sound. As far as can be imagined from stereotypical French refinement, Dirty Deep jump with both musical feet into the dusty freneticism and humid fervor of their Americana-flavored blues, folk and rock'n'roll inspired amalgam to howl, groove and stomp with a raw and viscerally intense urgency.
Powered by chunky, fuzzed-out bluesy riffs, driving grooves and thumping drums that come crowned with the blowin' of a runaway-train harmonica, the Dirty Deep's straight-to-the-point lyricism embraces everything from dreams of hittin' the road to heart-broken, swampy laments and bottom-of-the-glass philosophizing with a gloriously unselfconscious vitality. Having evolved from the gritty vocals and 'one-man-band' multi-instrumentals of frontman Victor Sbrovazzo's earliest incarnation of Dirty Deep to a trio that now includes guitar, bass, drums and organ, the band have been making a name for themselves across France and Europe following the release of their 'Shotgun Wedding' album, and welcome you to 'turn up loud the radio, drink your beer, smoke your cigarette' while joining them for some 'dirty blues'.
