Dirty Power is a hard-rock trio, inspired by life (and stuff), formed by Brendan (Guitar & Vocals) in London (UK) sometime around 2013… Now based in Dublin (IRL).

Affected by the continuing impact of many of the world’s ‘legacy acts’ seen at big festivals, as well as the appeal of the independent, punk D.I.Y. approach of many of these bands’ origins, the first step was to bring together some of the best rock musicians in the London scene (now drawn from all over Europe). The second step was to create the music that was challenging, yet had a ‘simple pleasures’ heartbeat.

The band’s more obvious musical influences include alternative, punk, metal and hard rock. Much of the Dirty Power sound is built on Rage Against The Machine foundations, layered with Nirvana arrangements, and is occasionally topped with progressive instrumental sections. ‘Fist-pumping, cathartic, mosh-pit-rock for the mind’, might be one way to describe it… ‘Heavy rock riffs, with big grooves, tricky solos and sing-along choruses’ might be another… In any case, the latest releases can be found at www.dirty-power.com/media.

Dirty Power is driven by an independent D.I.Y. punk ethic, in everything from the writing and recording process, to the approach to performing and touring. It is also an evolving collective of musicians, so the lineup of of the band changes from time to time.

Tours, videos and recordings are happening. Many have already happened, with more to come.
