Philadelphia’s own Dirty Tactics have been steadily gaining notoriety as one of the most exciting, up and coming, young bands. Known for catchy melodies and sing along choruses that maintain pop sensibility but offer the intensity and vigor only seen in the punk rock underground. As the band grows, a much more obscure approach to the music has been evident. When combined with the lyrical content, and the cleaner twang of the guitars, the band falls into a unique category of music that is hard to find in recent years.
