The vision I got when I heard garage rockers The Dirty Pennies second single Things You Say, is a late night on the Sunset Strip, back when The Whiskey was really a go-go bar..the girls dancing to fast guitar bands, a haze of smoke from cigarettes seemed to linger right above your head…
There is a ton of blues influence throughout this release but it doesn’t come across forced.
The Dirty Pennies make the type of songs you hear in a bar and HAVE to investigate because they’re stuck in your head.
There’s a really relaxing element to this short 3 song EP. Both in the vocal delivery and the wavy, west coast beach-y guitar riffs.

With 2017’s Kick Out The Rocks, The Dirty Pennies blend blues with other styles of music, feeling out the boundaries of how far they could push the genre. Now with their new EP (aptly entitled EP) they’ve mapped out their niche: grungy rust-belt garage rock, steeped in surf rock and blues.
