The psychedelic rock power trio from Fribourg, Switzerland, Dirty Sound Magnet just released their second album “TRANSGENIC” in October via Hummus Records. The band is now back with a new video “Organic Sacrifice”.
“Organic Sacrifice” or you might call it the Corona Blues, is yet another one of Dirty Sound Magnet’s prophetic tracks. The track was written in 2018, the music video was shot in October 2019 and the events are taking place now. Spot on! Where the lyrics have a dystopian feel, the music video intends to convey a message a positive message. Musically, we are close to Dirty Sound Magnet’s classic live sound: pure groove and swagger.
Frontman Stavros comments: “In the last few days, as the situation got worse, we edited the music video’s ending in order to end on a positive note. My initial message was more sarcastic but I guess that the people need some positive energy right now. So this somehow DSM’s hippie moment. Like the rest of the album TRANSGENIC, the song represents my vision of the present and near future.”
By no means, is this music video encouraging people to act against recommendations from the government.
“TRANSGENIC”:Drowned in this world of advanced technology and hyper-consumerism, individuals struggle to discover their inner self or communicate with each other. The album lays out a disturbing view of the present and the near future, with the significance of Social Media, and increasingly alarming ecological issues giving shape to an Orwellian dystopia.
Dirty Sound Magnetis a lifelong pursuit built on a feverish, border-line-religious passion for music and a common set of guiding values and beliefs. Members Stavros Dzodzosz (Guitar, Vocals), Marco Mottolini (Bass) and Maxime Cosandey (Drums), The three state it plainly: “there is no plan B”. Their dedication is unconditional, unequivocal, and unavoidable. Not one of the members has been engaged in any side projects since the band’s formation a decade ago; Dirty Sound Magnetoffers them a musical framework without any boundaries to their creative expression. The band’s DNA can be traced back to the ancestral ‘Golden Age of Rock’ (60s, 70s), but it would be incorrect to think that DSM is…“retro”. The musicians are inspired by contemporary artists and modern production techniques, pushing the boundaries as they see fit. The results are personal, unique and original. Simply put: the Dirty Sound Magnet experience is a mystical journey back to the future… “TRANSGENIC”.
