Track Of The Day 2/11 – Dirty Nice

Posted by

Dirty Nice are moving in their own lane.

An alt-pop duo who shuttle between London and Bournemouth, their DIY roots are matched to a glossy but potent sound.

Lockdown 2 may be upon us, but Dirty Nice are busy projecting rays of light to illuminate the escape routes.

New single ‘Montevideo’ is out now, and it’s a glorious return – engaging, colourful, and with a real emotional kick.

The 1975 would be an obvious point of comparison, but really Dirty Nice are working in their own lane, a unique two-piece partnership – Mark Thompson and vocalist Charlie Pelling – with a free-thinking sensibility.

We’re able to premiere the single alongside its visualiser, and it’s a potent longing for escape that has landed at just the right time.

Charlie Pelling comments…

“Sometimes, when you really fall for someone, the universe appears to bend all around you. Even the most seemingly normal of actions can have the power to transport you to the other side of the world, from a small front room on a rainy South London night to a sun baked beach in Montevideo.”

“In times like these, when we can’t travel to some romantic beach on the other side of the world, we have to find paradise within one another. So look closer, be patient and you might just see the sunset under their eyebrow, next to that little freckle.”

Tune in now.
