Dirty Jack EP review
A great 3 track collection of 90’s-esc soft rock – expect your mum to want to have a gander.
- Got a comment to make?
As I listen to the Dirty Jack EP from the band of the same name, I’m struck with a sharp unexpected sensation – I don’t know the tracks or the artist from previous, however I seem to feel highly nostalgic and reminiscent of the music, as if I’d been listening to the band all of my life!
There is reason for this, and it’s nothing more than them seemingly growing up through the 90’s. The whole EP is lathered in Bryan Adam’s-esc swagger, high pitched emotional riffs and broken hearted lyrics sweep me straight back to the days of my mother’s poor hair-brush singing and crap ‘emotional’ movie scenes from the same decade.
Despite these distressing feelings (and memories!), I can’t help but hear how well the music has been put together. When I say it reminds me of such times, this is a credit to the band, who have not only took the sound on as their own, but they do so incredibly well. Any song off the EP could assist any on screen break-up and induce tear-jerking of the ‘Friends 10th Season Finale’ magnitude.
Not music I would usually place to the front of my current playlist, however Dirty Jack have reincarnated a soft meaningful sound and brought it with them to the 21st century. I challenge anyone to listen to this and not find something they appreciate about it, the band seem to have unadulterated mass appeal.
