THE DIRTY STRIKES / READY. ROCKSTEADY. DIRTY STRIKES
Posted by: NeBuzz Uploaded: 20-Jun-15




A sedated storm brews within the throat of lead vocalist Kennedy Heigrujam as The Dirty Strikes pays tribute to Bom Leimapokpam, the lead guitarist of the band who committed suicide this year in January. A steady groove with a dry and dark mood fuelled by a soulful ache and the hope of clamoring back to equilibrium, ‘The Young and the flying machine’ is a visceral serenade to a dearly departed soul.

“To be very frank, we are now a plane without wings but we are still strong in our heart because Bom is still alive in our heart no matter what. And all those emotional times we shared over the past years won’t fade away easy. We will keep the light burning.” ~ Kennedy Heigrujam

The video for the track captures the band in motion; in recording studios, performing at concerts and on the road, an act of displacing the vacuum created by the untimely tragedy. It captures the cool tenacity of the band through the ragged melancholy in Kennedy’s self-assured-conversational vocals (reminiscent of Julian Casablancas and Lou Reed), smooth baselines, steady snares and the driving rhythm of the guitars


The Dirty Strikes is an Imphal based indie rock band formed in the year 2010. They consist of Kennedy Heigrujam (vocalist), Tom Meisnam (guitarist), Naoba Thingujam (bassist) and Thiyam Umakanta (drummer).
