Dirty Thrills released their self-titled debut album on 17th November. I must admit I don’t think that I’d heard of the band prior to receipt of the press release from Toxic Area Media; although the band formed in 2012 and seem to have been getting some decent media coverage. With a name like Dirty Thrills I was half expecting a sleaze / glam rock influence when I listened to the album. What I got was a rather pleasant surprise. Dirty Thrills deliver some good old fashioned rock n roll tunes, clearly more influenced by classic rock / blues sounds than by sleaze / glam artists.






Dirty Thrills previous release was an EP called “Growing Young” in 2013. A new single entitled “No Resolve” (track 1 on the album) was also released on 17th November at the same time as the album. A video for that track will be released too. There are ten tracks on the album and all are well worth checking out.

About “NI Rocks Recommends”

The simple idea behind “NI Rocks Recommends” is to acknowledge and promote some of the great music being submitted to Rock Radio NI. To be honest I’m not really a big fan of “Reviews” expressing positives or negatives which essentially just represent one person’s opinion. With “NI Rocks Recommends”, I'll not be giving marks or ratings or dissecting every aspect of the album; just telling you that something about the artist and the album and that I like it!

My musical tastes covers most things from heavy melodic rock (anything too melodic bores me!) to the lower echelons of the metal genre (where it’s not ALL growling and screaming!). The albums that I’ll be recommending are merely those that I would buy myself and which you’ll be hearing played on my shows on Rock Radio NI.
