The Dirty Blonde announce new album ‘Sugarmilk’!

"The latest in a long line of great bands from Glasgow..." - Gigwise

For fans of: Neutral Milk Hotel, Teenage Fanclub, Orange Juice, Husker Dü

Growing up together in a neighbourhood of Glasgow has gifted The Dirty Blonde with a connection that’s much sought after in musical circles - a raw honesty emanating throughout the music they create. This is immediately apparent on the band's free download track 'Bottom Feeder', which is taken from their forthcoming sophomore album Sugarmilk, and available to download via the ABoF Soundcloud page now.

Ultimately, the band play what they enjoy, refusing to be bound by genre, while taking inspiration from the works of bands such as R.E.M. and DIY heroes Ween, as well as an early exposure to Scotland’s fabled folk scene.

The result is an album, Sugarmilk, which refuses to sit still, jumping from the fuzzed out garage rock of tracks such as ‘Rosey-Eyed’ and free download ‘Take You Under’ to the introspective alternative shoegaze of the aforementioned ‘Bottom Feeder’ and ‘Start Over’, with the rest falling somewhere in between, fusing the two together into a cohesive, alt-rock whole. Goodbye: Tiny Fractures, which was released as a single earlier this year, may sound like a staple indie dance floor filler, but it’s soon elevated to greatness by Danny Gallagher’s high energy gravel coated vocals allied to the beautifully constructed interplay between guitars, bass and drums.

Buzzing with musical energy from a young age, brothers Danny (lead vocals & guitar) and Paddy Gallagher (bass & vocals)
along with Dean Canale (drums) and David Rybacki (guitar & vocals) were often kicked out of music classes at school, but refused to be discouraged as they experimented with a range of electronics, pedals and any other noise-making devices,
as they attempted to push their sound to the limit.

Having spent the last few years playing around Glasgow and the UK, including sold out shows at Nice’N’Sleazy and The 13th Note, the boys used the proceeds to set up their own rehearsal and recording studio, and are now ready to share their debut album with the world at large.

Sugarmilk is released via Two States Recording on 6th December 2015.
