EP review: DIRTY VERTEBRAE – Tense

DIRTY VERTEBRAE - Tense

The Animal Farm [Release date 06.12.19]

Dirty Vertebrae are made up of singer Nicole, rapper Ash P, drummer Scott, bassist Gaz and guitarist Chris, who were all born within a few miles of each other near Northwich, Cheshire.

An interesting mix as Nicole’s melodic singing mixes well with the rap patter of Ash P. Nice funky beat on ‘Tippex’ with a big guitar riff come the chorus, whilst ‘News At 10’ turns the negativity of news on its head. The accompanying video is well worth watching to see a band having fun and making good music.

‘Wormin’ closes off this EP and whilst not quite as good as the previous two songs, it still has a decent groove.

Don’t fear the rapper as Dirty Vertebrae have created their own sound and definitely a band to keep an eye on in 2020 and beyond. ***1/2
