Do you want a sample of the pure British punk and rock’n’roll scene? Do you want to be reminded of drunken nights in dingy pubs and clubs? If the answer is yes, then you definitely need The Black Sparrows in your life. This foursome, from London have been setting the music scene on fire with their danceable, energetic and lively take on a genre they call “punk’n’roll”.
‘Dirty Lips’ is the first single from their upcoming debut album Tiskie Tapes and this is one tune that you won’t be getting out of your head anytime soon. As soon as the first riff starts I guarantee you will be up on your feet dancing, screaming and generally wanting to go crazy. The catchy lyrics will have you singing for days. The energy in this track is outstanding and you can certainly get an idea of what it would sound like live. ‘Dirty Lips’ is the perfect example of British rock’n’roll and you’ll be left wondering why you didn’t listen to it sooner. With influence taken from The Libertines, The Clash and The Kinks it’s no wonder this band are making a big name for themselves within the British music scene.
If you want to hear more, Tiskie Tapes is out this week and if ‘Dirty Lips’ is anything to go by, then you are in for a treat!
