Gritty, sincere and effortlessly cool. These are just a few of the words we’d use to describe Berlin’s Kitty Solaris on her latest storming single ‘Dirt.’

And ‘Dirt’ is exactly what it says on the tin. Grungey, dark, and built on a dirty riff that rises to a full frontal sonic assault around the two minute mark. Raw, driving beats meander and swirl behind the soundscape like a beast in chains, baring their teeth for short snippets of electrifying energy.

Solaris sounds almost like a grunge Lana Del Rey; it’s dark and moody, it’s rock ‘n’ roll, and it’s absolutely sublime.
