Dirty Pretty Things test out new songs in London

Carl Barat and co preview forthcoming album in Camden

Dirty Pretty Things played songs from their forthcoming second album last night (April 30) at the Proud Gallery in London.

Carl Barat and co packed out the venue, playing a full electric set – despite rumours that the band were only there for an acoustic performance.

As well as older tracks including ‘Deadwood’ and set closer ‘Bang Bang You’re Dead’, Dirty Pretty Things played new songs ‘Hippy’s Son’, ‘This Is Where The Truth Begins’ and ‘Plastic Hearts’.

The latter song, already a live favourite from shows last year, is expected to be the band’s comeback single, while ‘This Is Where The Truth Begins’ is the title of their forthcoming second album, which is likely to be released this summer.

‘Hippy’s Son’ stood out in particular from the new grop, featuring energetic growled vocals from Barat and an insistent melody.

Bassist Didz Hammmond was still sporting his impressive moustache while guitarist Anthony Rossomando had the setlist scrawled wildly on his arm.

‘Come Closer’

‘Hippy’s Son’

‘Chinese Dogs’


‘Tired Of England’
