Bass. Drums. Violin. Skulls. Dirty Spells blast apart your reality with sawed-off violins, motorik drumming and Italian, retro-futurist, science-fiction soundtracks.
“At their first appearance, Dirty Spells distinguished themselves with a masked rhythm section. The pair of broad headed skull masks didn’t seem to slow down the bass or drum work. The undead duo provided great support for the group’s third component, Emily Bach, who commanded the upper end of the sonic spectrum with an electrified violin. With their not-so-common arrangement of instruments, the band made a powerful impression with their journey-like instrumentals. Dirty Spells set a fine mood for the evening’s sonic carnage.”
