Record of the week: Dirt by Astroid Boys
10 August, 2017 — By Róisín Gadelrab
WE’RE well-acquainted with rap-rock, but grime-rock is a new one to us. Cardiff collective Astroid Boys’ new single, Dirt, is definitely fun. Packed with the clichés we have come to expect – video through “the ends”, references to the Mandem and a suitably Rage Against the Machine/Pop Will Eat Itself rock riff – maybe it’s about time the grime-rock genre was introduced to the youngers. Plenty of material for Goldie Lookin’ Chain, here.
