SUPERSWEET Live presents Dirty Beaches 24 feb 2013
First Show From Supersweet in 2013 present Dirty Beaches as a one-man band Alex Zhang Hungtai records the journey of his life through a project he names Dirty Beaches. That’s exactly how his music sounds and feels, but most importantly, it evokes an enigmatic quality of the old school cinema. Like SUPERSWEET, Alex mixes all the unlikely influences. Aesthetically, it’s Wong Kar-Wai meets David Lynch in the shape of a bad-assed James Dean. Musically, now as a three-piece, Alex takes us on a psychosis ride, dropping by the Wild West on a whisky-fueled night and gently melts down as the sun comes up. The highlight release being ‘Badlands’ (2011), the spirit of rockabilly has never shone this vividly as we await the new album ‘Drifters’ coming out this year followed by an instrumental ‘Love is the Devil’.
