Listen to music from Dirty Beaches like Lord Knows Best, True Blue & more. Find the latest tracks, albums, and images from Dirty Beaches. Like Bo Diddley or minimalist synth provocateurs Suicide, Dirty Beaches’ compositions were not so much stripped down as refined to their essence. Drum loops, Hungtai’s croon, and the yearning melodies draped overtop belie as much a sense of haunting mystery as they do romanticism and wry humour. In November 2014 Alex Zhang Hungtai announced the end of Dirty Beaches.
Dirty Beaches is Alex Zhang Hungtai, a Taiwan-born Canadian immigrant who spent a good chunk of his life feeling unmoored and adrift. I don't really have a place where I can say I was born and raised," he told us last month. For me, home is a collage of all these fractured landscapes that I try to piece together. True Blue" and "Lord Knows Best", a pair toward the end of the album, offer a druggy, somber counterpoint to the punchier stuff earlier on. Something like Everly Brothers-style solemn crooning recorded in a closet, both have this great death-prom vibe- romantic and even pretty but with a healthy dose of evil.
