THE DIRTY NIL – SINGLE REVIEW

The Dirty Nil – Caroline (Dine Alone Records) 
The Dirty Nil - Caroline


Release Date: Out Now

I’ve been enjoying Hamilton’s the Dirty Nil for quite some time now but hadn’t realised quite what a back catalogue they had built up. Enough of a back catalogue to put together a collection of these tunes as an album (‘Minimum R&B’ is out at the end of April) but there is one brand spanking new track involved and that track is ‘Caroline’. The guitars are huge and swaggering from the word go but then, wait, what’s this? The ban break in to a soulful, staggering, bluesy piece of whisky bar rock that the likes of the Stereophonics, the Faces and the Libertines did so well with. This is sexy, rock’n’roll foreplay for the most part but there’s a satisfying climax at the end that lets you release all that pent up sexual tension in delirious freedom.
