Dirty Beaches 2013 Australian Tour
Dirty Beaches will be embarking on his debut tour of Australia early next year.
The brain behind Dirty Beaches is Alex Zhang Hungtai; a solo performer, sound-smith, and trans-Pacific nomad, Hungtai mixes a croon worthy of Elvis or Roy Orbison with drum machines and a fondness for found sounds and hypnotic loops. Dirty Beaches’ compositions are not so much stripped down as refined to their essence. Hungtai’s vocal enchants, and the yearning melodies draped overtop give as much a sense of haunting mystery as they do romanticism and wry humour.
