Show Review

These Brooklyn boys have been known to occasionally rock some grunge-worthy flannel shirts, but they aren't necessarily dirty. Rather, the group's name refers to the sonic debris that clouds their music with purposeful distortion, feedback, and random guitar squeals. Dirty on Purpose know how to write a melody, but they also know how to disguise it beneath walls of sound. You have to pay attention and listen intently to grasp what they're going for. That's how Dirty on Purpose reels you in, and that's why we love them.
