The new single from Bludgers is called “Dirty Laundry” and if its title is anything to go by. The single certainly airs their dirty laundry opening with big guitars and a heavy band sound.
Dirty Laundry, pushes their assured and brash sound hard in a balanced musical attack. They possess a sharp artistic edge while still being quite entertaining and never succumb to moments of self-indulgence or pretentiousness. The very idea of making such a broad, sweeping sound challenges our preconceptions about what musicians can do. Few bands, in any configuration, emerge with such a clearly delineated artistic vision and it is quite exciting entertaining the myriad of possibilities for them from this point forward.
It’s refreshing to hear the production having the same swing and inclinations towards a commercial side, but never allowing their commercial considerations to outweigh their strong personal style. The vocals are a highlight and the lyrical phrasing carries an electric charge of energy that comes across on a studio recording and can likely spark any live crowd. This is intensely youthful music, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t written and recorded by a high degree of intelligence.
Other notable songs by the band are Full Steam Behind, Frozen Ground and Saint Monday.
