Dirty Mitts – “Electric Kid”


London-based rockers Dirty Mitts unveil a bluesy charisma on new single “Electric Kid.” The vocals conjure a climactic, motivational appeal — “then I moved to Paris, to become someone,” — following the self-depicted beginnings. The confident invigoration melds aptly within the bluesy rock sound. The lyrics are written by fashion designer Mounir Ghazi, who commissioned the track. His words capture a personal journey, from youthful beginnings to fearless success in adulthood, brought on by determination and perseverance.

“I can’t be tamed,” a growling vocal ferocity lets out at one point, with a title-referencing quip ascending into rousing vocal theatrics. A guitar emphasis takes hold in the final minute, exuding a sweltering energy into a final, fierce vocal send-off with Robert Plant reminiscences. “Electric Kid” is a rousing rock success from Dirty Mitts, formed in 2022 and comprising Tommy (vocals), Matt (bass), Mo (guitar), and Mateusz (drums).

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.

We discovered this release via MusoSoup, as part of the artist’s promotional campaign.
