There quintessentially British Dirk Scarlett is on a mission to make the best music he can - no matter what the genre! Check out all of his videos on YouTube including the AI inspired ALEXA PLAY THIS SONG FOREVER and the atmospheric splendour of the rock ballad STILL
With all the craziness currently going on in the world, Dirk's latest track asks why not respond to everything with Just A Little Love, rather than anger, fear or prejudice? The video was produced with the kind participation of the SFA (Stock Footage Army), who took a welcome break from fighting a rampaging gorilla in downtown Tokyo. No members of the SFA were harmed during the making of this carbon neutral film.
With the sweeping melodies & oh so catchy hooks you have come to expect from Dirk, his new track celebrates all the things that make him feel free - and includes the only thing better than a screaming lead guitar; TWO screaming lead guitars!
Dirk Scarlett has teamed up with legendary acoustic producer/mixer Max Honsinger (The 1975, Bastille, Jake Bugg) on his amazing new track The Long Way Round (I Will Do Anything). This lyrically stunning acoustic gem aims to bring a modern flavour to the hallowed Abbey Rd style of music production. In Dirk’s own words ‘I wanted to capture the analogue richness of historical recordings but embrace a cleaner, smoother sound’. It's simply a great emotive pop song!
Just how many proverbs/sayings can you shoehorn into one song? Listen to Damocles by Dirk Scarlett and see if you can spot how many there are! And see the Dirk Adventurer complete the Action Man Quartet in the fab video!
Why does everyone think the music from their generation is the best music? Is music getting better? Worse? Or just constantly changing. Dirk asks this & other vital life questions in ALEXA PLAY THIS SONG FOREVER! Very few record shops anymore so instead we voice activate our preferences - what a world!
Its hard when relationships end; harder still when that end is completely unexpected! Capturing the incredible cavalcade of emotions that accompany the surprise bombshell of just such a goodbye ambush, A-BOMB! is a feel good singalong track to give hope at these times. You weren't the first, you won't be the last; but you can get through it!
Originally written on my minikey Casio CZ101 back in the dawn of time, STILL tells the story of the emotional cavalcade that accompanies leaving a home you have shared with someone you loved after the relationship has broken down. A downtempo ballad with a hypnotic bassline it captures the essence of lost opportunities & dreams. It is a ballad, so a simple, moody straight performance video with a background of iconic Walsall landmarks.
Finally available at long last, the VERTICAL video for Social Media Whore - perfectly designed to be viewed on all your mobiles & tablets whilst you are ignoring someone in the real world right beside you! Inspired by the prevalence of people ignoring other people whilst continually checking their mobiles for any contact whatsoever, Social Media Whore is a tongue in cheek indictment of modern social graces or the lack thereof. Starring of course, Dirk Scarlett & a dancing kitten!
With a thumper of a driving beat & a catchy hook of a chorus to die for, BANG [ Like a Supernova ] represents Dirk's first foray into the zany, action packed, larger than life world of POWERPOP! Bringing his own unique Intellipop credentials to the mix, this track is the first release where all the music was written, played, mixed & produced by Dirk himself - a true one man band. And with a video inspired by the Japanese vinyl imports of his youth it is knocking on the door of ART! NOICE!
