Manchester based DIRTY LACES are a down and out rock ‘n’ roll outfit who hit you with crunching and hypnotic guitars, huge drum fills and a sound that echoes the likes of The Cult and Led Zeppelin meshed with a Libertines-esque vibe. Their new single These Days is out now via Golden Robot Records.
“These Days is a song about the times we now live in, along with the history of class struggle and the rise and fall of empires and how that’s relevant to what we’re experiencing now. The song was written just after a long stint in isolation and was fuelled by the emotion that comes with long periods without social interaction and the things you take for granted. Most of the media we were consuming at the time was very negative and bleak and painted a picture of the mess that the UK was in. But there has always been struggle and resistance towards power in history. It’s obviously not a new thing” – DIRTY LACES.
DIRTY LACES have been making an impact on the Manchester music scene for a few years. Delivering a high octane, punk tinged sound, blended with some of the legendary UK Classic Rock influences, DIRTY LACES hit you with heavy riffs and addictive melodies, that produces powerful Mancunian rock’n’roll with a dirty garage edge.
