Southern California’s Dirty Heads are kicking off 2023 – promising to be their most active year yet – with the release of their new single ‘Rescue Me’ and announcing the first of three EPs dropping this year, ‘Midnight Control Sessions: Night 2.’ The collection of EPs dropping in 2023 will feature songs written and recorded during the Dirty Heads’ ‘Midnight Control’ era.
‘Rescue Me’ is an ode to California with a breezy vibe and lyrics that encapsulate the undeniable impact that the Golden State has had on the band. The music video, directed by Jay Teegardin and Dirty Heads vocalist Jared Watson, reflects the tone of ‘Rescue Me’ featuring surf, sand, and images that evoke the spirit of California. The band’s forthcoming 4-track EP, ‘Midnight Control Sessions: Night 2,’ featuring unreleased songs, remixes, and special guests is due out April 14th.
“‘Rescue Me’ is our ode to California and we thought it would be rad to flip a Red Hot Chili Peppers hook. Not only did they influence us but they are one of the most influential and defining bands ever to come out of Cali. So it was a no-brainer. It just felt right,” shares vocalist Jared Watson. “This song is about the spirit of California and the influence she’s had on us as human beings. The beach, the desert, and the mountains, all available within the same day, waiting with open arms to feed your soul,”
In 2022 Dirty Heads released their highly anticipated 8th studio album ‘Midnight Control’ via Better Noise Music. The album featured ten songs, including their take on Joe Walsh’s 1978 hit ‘Life’s Been Good,’ ‘Heavy Water’ feat. Common Kings and ‘Island Glow.’ ‘Midnight Control’ debuted in the Top 10 on Billboard’s Alternative Albums chart, Digital Albums chart, Rock Albums chart, and Independent Albums chart.
