The Dirty Secrets

One month ago, “When is the debut album being released?” I asked Jarrah McCleary, vocalist/keyboardist of The Dirty Secrets when they were playing in my university. I emerged a fan after having the opportunities to see them played twice. Their performance is always pumped up with confidence and energy that leaves the crowd in thrills and anticipation for a full release. March 22, 2008, the self titled debut album finally released in Australia via the bands own Vagabond Records.

It seems every provincial capital in Australia has its best kept secret.
The Dirty Secrets is a four-piece new wave/indie rock outfit from Perth. Many must think new wave, synth rock isn’t new anymore, but the band does it brilliantly by combining dirty bass riffs, quivering guitar with chest pounding beats and uniquely deep quirky vocals. Engineered and mixed by the UK's highly respected Nick Terry, who also produced Mercury Prize winner Klaxons, The Libertines, Ian Brown, Franz Ferdinand, etc, the self titled debut album is sure to create buzz and receive strong airplay worldwide. The three singles lifted from the debut album “Five Feet Of Snow”, “My Heart Is On Fire” and “Lighthouse” has been added to Triple J’s high rotation over the last six months due to their fast-paced catchiness with a pinch of electro.

The Dirty Secrets is definitely one of the most promising new acts from down under. Be sure to keep an eye out for the Perth boys!
