Bio

New Single "She Shot It" OUT NOW. Written as a band, produced as a band, recorded live and mixed and mastered to tape, Dirt Farmer like to do things the natural way. This approach has made 'She Shot It' a swinging, shaking, lovelorn and beautifully messy rock and roll song where lead singer S. Barlow preaches “She was at the dance on Saturday night, Dancing up a storm with another guy” and features band members and friends yelling over the track on behalf of their singers disillusion.

"It’s a display of Dirt Farmer at their best, proving they’re masters of beautifully messy rock and roll." - Tone Deaf

The first full length record from Melbourne 5 piece Dirt Farmer titled “Free BBQ” Is set for release mid-year. The Album, mixed in Echo Park Los Angeles and Mastered at Capitol Records in Los Angeles, promises the slick LA rock & roll tape sound of the 60’s and 70’s coupled with modern song writing and nostalgic, Australian Country inspired lyrics.

That saxophone bellows like a horn of the gods. Well played.

Killer falsetto chorus? Check. Woozy Harmonica? Check. Hammond splashes? Check. Everything else falling into place? Check.

I've been known to be no stranger to hyperbole but I'm just going to go and say it; this is song is perfect. Every instrument sounds bouncy and warm in the mix and the hooks just keep rolling out with gold-hued loveliness.
