Alt rock/hip hop group Dirty Heads have not quite followed the traditional album launch route you expect from the majority of acts, waiting until now at the release of their fifth full-length release. The album is defined as their signature sound, perhaps a reason why their moniker has been slapped on the title; “We reached out to numerous producers rather than just using one. It was something we had never done and we wanted to try something new to push us creatively.”
The release of their new single ‘That’s All I Need’ in Ireland back in October via Five Seven Music, the home of half Irish act ROMES, which is a possible door that has seen them open up to wider audiences than before.
As for their name and formation, a culmination of school connections and musical ones led to the group forming their hip-hop inspired sound. The name however, eludes even the guys; “We constantly lie about the origin of the name, always trying to one-up each other in interviews and now it’s lost in a web of lies forever.“
Their latest album was recorded in the hills of Los Angeles at a rented studio/house, with the intention of pushing boundaries while still maintaining that typical Dirty Heads sound. “We reached out to numerous producers rather than just using one. It was something we had never done and we wanted to try something new to push us creatively. We know we will always have the original Dirty Heads sound no matter who works with us so it was fun to have new ears and minds in the studio.”
As for the result, they describe it as “Solid” set of songs. On top of that, the release of their music on a wider scale, especially here in Ireland, has been a milestone.“We are excited [to release the single], now we just need to get over there to play live. “
‘That’s All I Need’ is out now on Five Seven Music
