Flo by Tom Beard

The Dirty Disco cover Florence and The Machine

They are glamorous. They are sleazy. They are pop. “Imagine… the lust child of Ziggy Stardust and Britney Spears”. They are The Dirty Disco.

In an interview I did with Olly last year he told me “we began writing songs together with an aim to be different, outrageous but without being too extreme. We quickly found we had an ability to write catchy songs without being too cheesy yet retaining a rock and electronic edge.” And that’s exactly what they do and they do it well.

Take Florence and The Machine’s “soul inspired indie” and mix it with “an unhealthy dose of glam” and you’ll have The Dirty Disco’s cover of Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up). I love it. You will too.

They are currently hard at work on their debut album, which will include mixes by the uber talented Grammy nominee Dylan Dresdow (who worked with the Black Eyed Peas on their latest album). Expect the dance floor to be filled with their beats very soon.

Are you ready for The Dirty Disco?
