The Mancunian punk-inspired hard rockers Dirty Laces were an unknown outfit to yours truly until I received a promo copy of this spirited four-track EP of theirs titled “L’Esprit Du Temps” a few weeks ago, and what we have here is a fabulous cocktail consisting of irresistible hooks and a solid dose of energy.
The vocal melodies and riffs are incredibly easy on the ear and instantly appealing while the rhythm section adds a drive and punch to the compositions that is wonderful to behold. There is a purity and a precious raw quality to these vital-sounding tracks that makes for a highly enjoyable listening experience, and although the EP is ridiculously catchy, it is by no means devoid of substance nor something that one grows tired of listening to. The organic vibe and slightly loose feel of it all makes it sound as if they recorded these emotionally charged tunes while jamming in the studio together – and I absolutely love that. A great addition to the modern British punk rock discography and definitely worth looking into for fans of the genre (as well as hard rock in general) as it is actually pretty moving and heartfelt stuff.
