Dirtywings

dirtywings' music is indie-pop earcandy with a rock/electro edge. Hairbrush-mime to their fresh yet familiar-sounding melodies, hooky riffs, and catchy, memorable choruses. Lyrically, dirtywings push the pop envelope, unafraid to probe at controversial subjects. They invite listeners to have a spiritual moment by meditating on the fundamental question 'what happens when I die?' ("When My Body Dies").
