Dirty Pretty Things’ New Single

by Davey

‘Deadwood’ (single)

I’m not a fan of these trendy type groups, all style and no spunk, but ‘Deadwood’ is a surprisingly vigorous offering from Carl Barat and co, bouncy and Razorlight-y.

The general dullness of this sort of music has been buffed up and even rocked up – or maybe it’s my weakness for tambourine talking.

Nevertheless, the robust nature of the single is a sure-fire hitmaker, destined to make skinny-jeaned posers spazz out in the moshpits. The rest of us can stand by and nod along, content that we’re not twats, but we can still like this song.
