“They are all super fun, super cute, super talented, and I’m super late with seeing their video (it was released last October). It’s for the song “Your Name Here” and the quality is superb (I’m a music video freak). Raycee Jones gives me everything, Mark Sanderlin is adorable, and this song is catchy as hell.”
““Everybody Knows” is my favorite song off their EP, simply because of its funky- fresh, party bounce sound, infused with soul and perfect for blasting at your next basement party when your parents are out of town. The Dirty Gems are bringing sexy-grunge back , as they’re full of spunk and totally ignite that nostalgic feeling of when I first listened to Tragic Kingdom on cassette tape back in the day.”
“The band is promoted as “stadium rockers” in its publicity material, pointing to musical influences such as Gnarls Barkley, Amy Winehouse, Jeff Beck and Queen. ”
"...The Dirty Gems' original music takes its cues from the likes of Gnarls Barkley, The B52's, No Doubt and Dr. Dre. Since forming in March of 2011, they have played many of Long Island and NYC's best venues."
