Black Diamond Eyes – Filthy Tricks [Single]

Filthy tricks release their first single ‘Black Diamond Eyes’ this Saturday 13th April and fans wont be dissapointed.

Gerard Van Den Hoek (Guitarist) and Liam Rimmer (Vocalist) lay down a long and loose intro before the track kicks into a stomping bluesy anthem.

Like a ‘fleshed out’ black keys, Filthy Tricks make good use of the extra width of instruments but stay close to the main hook. This gives the track a great driving/rolling feel that’s broken up with interesting accents.

Rimmer drawls and spits through the verses and is ably backed up by the rest of the band throughout the anthemic chorus before the riff deconstructs and fires the listener into the middle 8.

‘Black Diamond Eyes’ wraps up with a balls out chorus that’s penned to keep a live show bouncing before the trailing hook brings the audience back to earth. In summary; a great first release, let’s hear some more..
