WE REVIEW THE NEW EP FROM DIRTY MONEY – VICE AND VIRTUE

Unleashes their latest sonic concoction with the “Vice and Virtue” EP, a four-track voyage into the classic rock universe. A band that wears its influences proudly on its sleeve, DIRTY MONEY invites listeners to join them where nostalgia meets the raw energy of the present.

The EP kicks off with “Play to Win,” a track that immediately establishes DIRTY MONEY’s commitment to the classic rock ethos. Riff-laden guitars and a pounding rhythm section set the stage, channelling the spirit of rock ‘n’ roll’s golden age. While the track doesn’t necessarily reinvent the wheel, its unabashed energy is infectious, inviting audiences to throw caution to the wind and embrace the sonic ride.

“Running from the Night” continues the journey with a more introspective tone. The vocals soar, injecting a sense of yearning into the narrative. DIRTY MONEY showcases their ability to balance the gritty, hard-hitting riff with a slight change of pace.

“Kilo Tango” injects a dose of rock chill into the EP, with its bluesy undertones and groove. The interplay between the instruments adds a layer of complexity that elevates “Kilo Tango” beyond a mere classic rock homage, making it a standout moment on the EP.

Closing the curtain on “Vice and Virtue” is “Ego,” a fitting finale that encapsulates the EP’s thematic finale, Flashes of The Chain from Fleetwood Mac. The guitar solos intertwine with the rhythm section nicely and end this rock ep in style.

While DIRTY MONEY excels in capturing the essence of classic rock, “Vice and Virtue” occasionally falls victim to the genre’s clichés. However, the EP succeeds in delivering a solid dose of rock ‘n’ roll adrenaline, paying homage to the genre’s roots while injecting contemporary vigor.
