DIRTY HEARTS Brisbane Dirty Hearts are a 3-piece band from Brisbane who are putting their own slant on classic Australian rock ‘n’ roll. Playing with an energy and soul that leaves other bands in their wake, Dirty Hearts aren’t so much pumping on your stereo as they are blowing your speakers up. Blending alternative ‘90s Australian and ’70s British rock, Dirty Hearts have carved out their own sound that demands to be listened to – loudly. Front man Matt Doe wails both lyrically and on guitar, while bassist T-Man and drummer Groovey Avalon provide the raw power. Having supported some of the country’s most revered bands such as You Am I, DZ Deathrays, Peep Tempel and Velociraptor, the trio are more than the sum of their parts when it comes to their powerful and relentless live performances. Following on from their 2014 self-titled EP, Dirty Hearts will release their debut album General Bitterness and Inner City Moonshine this year through Near Enough Records. Recorded at By the Living Grace Studio in Brisbane’s east, the album mixes Matt Doe’s soaring vocals and raucous guitar with mature song writing that goes from garage rock to sing-a-long anthems and back again. Brisbane’s 4ZZZ described have described the band’s sound as “the music that once ruled this country”. With their strong DIY work ethic and fistfuls of classic tunes, Dirty Hearts are ready to stake their claim for Australia’s rock ‘n’ roll throne.
