Debut album from the British electropunk duo! Featuring remixes from GRENDEL, DIE SEKTOR and MODULATE!
A couple of years ago, a visually-arresting British duo self-released a debut album, only for DWA to swoop, sign and reissue it a few months later in an expanded edition complete with new tracks and major name remixers.
That duo was SURGYN, the album was the now-bestselling "Vanity" - and the rest, as they say, is history...
Now, in what could be seen as history eerily repeating itself, we present the debut full-length from another young gender-bending British duo who we tip to emulate SURGYN's irresistible rise to fame - London's dirty electro-punk duo PRETTY ADDICTED.
Like "Vanity", PRETTY ADDICTED self-released a version of "Filth" earlier this year with little publicity - and like "Vanity" we signed it after just one listen, because the rough-and-ready content blows the labored efforts of long-established "industry professionals" instantly out of the water, backed with the promise of even greater things still to come...
Now expanded to a true full-length album with the addition of 3 brand new tracks, rounded out with remixes from heavy-hitters of the scene such as GRENDEL, MODULATE and DIE SEKTOR, "Filth" has all the hallmarks of an instant classic and another amazing discovery from DWA.
Loud, catchy and in your face, PRETTY ADDICTED have both the earsplitting sounds to move your body and the sassy sarcastic lyrics to snare your mind.
A musical maelstrom of punk attitude, smart sampling, lyrics and song titles littered with razor-sharp wit, and taking its musical cues anywhere from trance to digital hardcore, "Filth" is "a day in the life" of PRETTY ADDICTED's London...and it isn't tourist-friendly.
Urgent, immediate, intense, PRETTY ADDICTED will punch you where it hurts and still leave you gagging for more even after you've been mugged and left for dead somewhere between ANGELSPIT and ATARI TEENAGE RIOT - angels with dirty faces and even dirtier minds.
Complete with already-breaking club hits like "PCP" and "Slut Junkie", the creepy carnival sounds of "Clown" and even a twisted take on "The Twilight Zone" theme, "Filth" is a true diamond in the rough.
Already being powerplayed in clubs by "those in the know", we expect fans of all things hard and dark to rapidly and rabidly be all over "Filth" like flies to proverbial shit.
PRETTY ADDICTED have arrived, and things are about to get ugly.
Time to get down and dirty.
"Filth" is available digitally NOW - June 14th - and on CD from July 19th.
The CD contains a couple of dirty little secrets not found in the digital version, and initial quantities come in limited edition 4-panel digipak format.
