What a fucking belter of a track! Like Nick Cave being throttled as some sort of funeral procession marches by, ‘Dirty Bird’ just fucking jumps at you with a deathly epic nature that hasn’t been seen ‘Murder Ballads’. However, instead of the usual Nick Cave ‘I’m-better-than-you-poetry’, East Brunswick All Girls Choir come at it with a pretty cool dirty vibe, like they were just unearthed from the bottom of the Yarra river.
‘Dirty Bird’ goes off in about a million diretions at once, warbled, pained vocals, ungodly screams, droning guitar and mass freakouts. But the whole time, badass remains a virtue. Fucking killer track.
