The Dirty Nil – Fuckin’ Up Young 7″

Coming seemingly from nowhere this summer is the debut 7″ single from THE DIRTY NIL of Dundas, Ontario, Canada. Released by the Wolfshirt Records label, this powerful three piece has locked up the true premium summer jams.

Things begin with a quick blast and a chant in the beginning of “Fuckin’ Up Young”, where shortly thereafter the immaculate destruction begins to ensue. Made up by punishing bass lines, pounded percussion and jagged guitar hooks, these elements all combine for an epic, solid-as-concrete wall of fury that is best experienced at the loudest possible volumes. Lead singer Luke Bentham screams and carries on during fist-in-air choruses at wincing pitches and clearly he’s pissed about something. However it’s anything but the stunning, unexpectedly awesome quality of this double A-side single. But if you thought that was special there’s still one song to go, so sit back down buddy.

On the flip, “Verona Lung” again comes through with a similar all-engulfing complexion, rounded out with springy guitars and throbbing bass lines of purely innocent and discontented angst. Fiery guitars begin to build as this song approaches the midpoint, where things explode into metallic oblivion as an enormous black hole of snarling guitar rage begins to suck everything into it’s vast existence. After an all too appropriate freak out that will leave you feeling like a worthless pile of rubble, don’t forget you decided during “Fuckin’ Up Young” that this single required more than one play. Now after it’s all said and done, it requires dozens.

So to sum this up, is this our single of the summer? Probably. Now check these songs out for an honestly refreshing blast of straight up, in your face rock, because that’s what we like giving you the most.
