The Dirt Tracks - Kaleidoscope

Single review by jay@thesoundofconfusion.co.uk

There is a clutch of strong, powerful, emotive bands quickly rising at the moment such as Pylo and Morning Smoke. Now you can add to that list the impressive The Dirt Tracks. With 'Kaleidoscope' they bring us a enchanting song which entices with an almost breathtaking allure, then simply hooks you in. There are touchstones of Bends-era Radiohead, Jeff Buckley then latterly Foals and The Temper Trap. But this is no mere copyist; 'Kaleidoscope' is a bewitching song that grows with depth and grace on each listen.

The Dirt Tracks show a mature hand and craftsmanship by not falling into crowd pleasing yet unnecessary bombast. With the use of some charmingly ornate strings, they add that final exquisite touch, to quietly lift 'Kaleidoscope' above the ordinary, and lead you to a blissful rapture. 'Kaleidoscope' is the perfect title for a song that is flooded with a myriad of beguiling colours and textures, and leaves you yearning to find what more The Dirt Tracks have to give us.
