DIRTY THRILLS – ‘Heavy Living’

the album : out now


“The songwriting is strong, broadly based in blues-rock but with a tendency to shift gears”  


“London upstarts come on like the next Rival Sons ****


“A full length debut that’s overflowing with emotive heavy blues. Thrills indeed


“It’s only a matter of time before they really break through, and it won’t be a moment too soon. 9 out of 10



Dirty Thrills are a young, exciting and charismatic London based hard rock quartet who play bluesy rock ‘n’ roll with an appealing filthy edge, churning out endless crowd pleasers that make guitar music sound sexy again. With lung-busting, powerful vocals from front man Louis James, killer guitar riffs from Jack Fawdry and solid low-end grooves from the rhythm section of Aaron Plows and Steve Corrigan, each member’s influences combine to produce a sound reminiscent of Queens Of The Stone Age, The Black Keys and Rival Sons.

Dirty Thrills formed after a drunken night of jamming in a quiet village pub in Wiltshire, but what started out as an inconspicuous session swiftly birthed an ambitious group with the drive and determination to bring the glory days back to the rock scene. Having released a self-titled debut record in 2014, they signed to Italian powerhouse label Frontiers Music srl in 2016. Their new album, ‘Heavy Living’, was recorded at Monnow Valley Studio in Rockfield, Monmouth and was produced and mixed by James Loughrey (The Darkness, Skindred, Sumo Cyco).
