The Dirty Disco "White Room" Released 23rd August
As filthy as they are devine, The Dirty Disco are thrusting their way up festival bills across the country with a bang of precise timing, slick electronica and infectious pop hooks. Finding their local music scene to be packed with pretentious, self-important shoe gazing Indie, they desired to create something different, something fresh and something theatrical. Something they’ve succeeded in doing, and then some.
In fact, when asked to describe the pulsating electro theatrics of The Dirty Disco, one crackpot follower had this advice: “Imagine… the lust child of Ziggy Stardust and Britney Spears”. And they weren’t far from the mark. What they neglected to mention was this Britney Spears would also have to have a penchant for bad acid, more than a passing interest in the happenings of back-street Soho and a unique way of fusing gyrating Electronica with infectious pop hooks.
"Fantastically loopy, theatrical and infectious in a warped land that encompasses New Order, The Cure, Cher; Electro-Pop fuelled madness and a dash of psychedelic panache thrown in for good measure. Transcends any real critique. A masterpiece in a world entirely its own.” All Gigs
"Their glam, electro-pop reminded us a lot of Lady Gaga if she had decided to strap a guitar to her body instead of Kermit the Frog" Boom Boom Chik
"An unhealthy dose of glam! Sleazy and above all irresistibly catchy pop" Tom Robinson, BBC6
"The Dirty Disco will give you a uniquely glamorous, highly-electrifying, disco ball-shattering, shimmer-induced ride that will make you dance until your feet hurt so bad you'll have to get a cast" Pop From The Block
“White Room” is the The Dirty Disco’s second single, the follow up to their debut and introductory single "Sista!" which peaked at No. 20 in the iTunes Dance Chart. Both tracks, along with future single “Storyteller” were mixed by Grammy Award Winning Dylan "3D" Dresdow, Will.I.Am / Black Eyed Peas long-term studio accomplice, after the unsigned band got in contact through facebook. Dresdow has been responsible for mixing the likes of Nas, Michael Jackson, Wu-tang Clan, and more recently Black Eyed Peas, Cheryl Cole, Rihanna and Kelis. "White Room" was mastered by Tom Coyne (Britney Spears / Beyonce / Pink / Cheryl Cole).
Initial remixes of White Room are available from Last Japan, Subsource, Shooting Horses, Voltergeist and The Art.
I wrote the lyrics just as I was getting over a really shitty phase of black, blue and turd brown" says The Dirty Disco's Adam Boy, "And after the ever-so-efficient NHS insisted i needed to spend a few hours in a “White Room” many moons ago. I didn’t want to write a self-pitying song. Sometimes you need to laugh at yourself to get out of the state of mind that has engulfed you. The video is tongue-in-cheek galore and I believe that Music and an exaggeration of a stereotype are both fantastic ways of creating awareness.

"Emerging British electro-pop Sensation The Dirty Disco... a perfect balance between emo-fueled pop rock and 80s inspired
synth pop with a theatrical twist.. A potent package of both style and substance" Arjan Writes

"The Dirty Disco will rip off your head and shout down your neck if you stare in their eyes" Virtual Festivals @ The Great Escape
"The whole afternoon however was entirely overshadowed by The Dirty Disco. They were great, equal parts drama school and what Lady Gaga was probably dreaming about when she was playing solo gigs in New York." Quism @ The Great Escape
"If The Dirty Disco were an actual club, I'd be there every weekend. The place would be sleazy, extravagant, intense, and glamorous. I'd have a lifetime pass, and I'd never leave." The Pop Sucker
"A creature has spawned so bizarre and so colourful...a new chapter in the melting pot of modern pop culture... with a refreshingly authentic ‘Don’t give a fuck’ attitude that seems to seep from every pore.. The pretense is real – Viva La Revolution!!!" We Are Not A Rock Band
“As polished and professional as it is artsy and avant garde...A dynamic frontman. an absolutely bat-shit crazy performer. I was converted into a major fan about ten seconds into the song. Mixes glam, electro, punk, and pop into a perfect cocktail!” No.1 Hits From Another Planet
