Packed and ready to go, Victoria’s Dirty Mountain have announced the release of their first full-length album, 01. Bringing together the incredible harmonies of Elli Hart and Gord Light, this eight-track recording delivers the best of Victoria’s folk-rock music scene to indie music fans across the country.
Since their first performance at a sold-out show last fall, Dirty Mountain has been climbing to the top of its own mountain and from the summit the view is incredible. With a 10-date western tour on the books and big plans for the summer it’s clear that the effort has been worth it.
Produced by Adam Sutherland (Wil, David Gogo, Vince Vaccaro) and mastered by Brock McFarlane (CPS Mastering), 01 delves deep into the struggles that people face in everyday life, whether it’s love, addiction or finding their way in the rat race. Starting off with an unrelenting beat driven by a woman’s scorn in “Ashes,” the album weaves its way through the sounds of New Orleans with “The Undertaker” and presents incredibly personal and vulnerable lyrics in the very-relatable “Tangled Up Lies.
Heading out on the road later this month, Dirty Mountain will continue to celebrate the release of 01 throughout 2016. Together the trio will take big steps toward the opportunities that await them atop the next mountain.
