Shooting from the hip, Spanish hard rockers clear the path for their full-length debut.
Five years in the making, "Dirty Boys Of The Underground" looks destined to launch this quintet on an international orbit, and its preceding single is a strong bid for that ascension. While 2014’s EP “Die!!” demonstrated their voracious intent, “Teacher” is packing the band’s chops in a short performance that’s as screamingly sleazy as the record’s cover suggests.
The piece’s core rock ‘n’ roll sliced with a riff-and-rhythm exchange between Miguel Wylde and M.C. Petaka, its high-octane drive is as infectious as it gets when Javy Stoner’s hollering hooks come flying for the whole band to jump on and groove with all the testosterone-fuelled might. And once Miguel Ruiz’s drums ram the chant of “All right!” home, it’s so hilarious there should be no objections to the “swing your boobs” line.
Quite a teaser for “Dirty Boys”: these new kids on the block bring a breath of fresh air to the city.
