London-based label DIRTY HIT have announced their second UK tour, showcasing some of the label’s best and brightest talents for twenty dates across the UK. Kicking off in Cambridge in November, the tour will feature BEABADOOBEE, NO ROME and OSCAR LANG. The run of shows culminates in a special night at London Dome on Friday 20 December. Tickets are on sale now from: www.dirtyhit.co.uk
BEABADOOBEE recently released the video for her latest single, I WISH I WAS STEPHEN MALKMUS, whilst on a 30-date USA tour with Clairo. She also recently played her first ever international headline show, a sold-out night at the Chelsea Music Hall in New York in September.
Born in the Philippines and raised in London, Bea Kristi began recording music as BEABADOOBEE in 2017. At just 19 years old, she has built a huge, dedicated Gen-Z fan base with her flawless output of confessional bedroom pop songs and DIY aesthetic. Her first track, COFFEE, gathered hundreds of thousands of streams in a matter of days through a fan-loaded video. Since then, her songs have amassed millions of streams between her own self-released recordings and her first two full EPs, PATCHED UP and LOVEWORM, both released by Dirty Hit, whilst receiving press support from Vogue, Dazed, The Fader, i-D, Time Out, New Yorker and The Guardian amongst others.
NO ROME recently released the video for his latest single, TALK NICE, the follow up to his critically acclaimed CRYING IN THE PRETTIEST PLACES EP, which saw him amass a staggering 100 million streams globally.
The immaculately self-produced TALK NICE is a firm statement of intent from the 22-year-old Filipino artist. NO ROME confidently manages to distil a hugely eclectic range of influences, from production genius J Dilla to shoegaze bands such as My Bloody Valentine and Slowdive to irresistible pop melodies – cleverly juxtaposing high end, contemporary pop production with a raw guitar sound. Having recently played to several thousand people in his hometown of Manila and support flooding in from the likes of The Guardian, NME and The Fader to name just a few, NO ROME is firmly establishing himself as one of the most exciting, talented new breed of pop stars.
18-year-old Londoner OSCAR LANG recently released his self-produced BOPS ETC EP, his first music of 2019 and his debut release with Dirty Hit.
Having already worked on a string of acclaimed releases from friends and fellow up-and-comers including label mate Beabadoobee and Norway’s talented Girl in Red, OSCAR LANG is carving out a reputation as the songwriter and producer pushing bedroom pop to exciting new heights: a budding Brian Wilson for Gen-Z. His self-released 2018 records TEENAGE HURT and SILK set the tone for his solo work – spanning lilting psych hooks to dreamy washes of guitar to punchy millennial lyricism; drawing in hundreds of thousands of listeners in the process.
