“In 2015 I had an allergy to penicillin and my liver failed.Â
I spent months in the hospital floating above my body on a dilaudid drip. These songs were written & recorded by Chris, Tyler, Tony & I around this time. They are the soundtrack to my toxic morphine haze.”Â
It appears that quite a bit has happened since Oakland indie rock 4-piece Everyone is Dirty released their debut Dying is Fun in 2014. Â Dilaudid, for one. Â Sonically and lyrically, a drug like that can change the DNA of a band, but Everyone is Dirty’s ethos still sounds perfectly intact. Â That ‘slacker stoner’ art rock vibe perfectedÂ from Gen X-ers in theÂ ’90s reverberates through the layers of lead-off track San Andreas, but there’s a hell of a lot more in there to notice upon repeated listens. Â ThoseÂ heavenly harmonies towards the end of the songÂ will warm your eardrums faster than a morphine drip ever could, and their use of synths and violinsÂ defy genres. Â Looking forward to hearing the rest!
