Hungarian indie-pop-rock Dirty Slippers pioneers stole the show and our souls with ‘Honest Kid’

Dirty Slippers made history as the first Hungarian band invited to record in Abbey Road Studios with George Shilling (Oasis, Mike Oldfield) and Tim Palmer (U2, Bon Jovi). Just one hit of their latest single, Honest Kid, was enough to affirm why they are a multi-award-winning outfit with three charting albums under their belt in their home country. FYI, NOTHING is lost in translation.

The indie pop-rock outfit, fronted by singer and guitarist Lázár Lobó-Szalóky, who knows just how to put your heart in your throat as you feel the full force of the emotion projected through every facet of the arrangement, songwriting and lyricality, are unparalleled in their captivatingly evocative presence on the airwaves.

Reminiscent of the 00s indie-pop-rock legacy acts, yet intrinsically unique with their folky baroque beguile, Dirty Slippers stole my soul from the first hook in the single that looks back on childhood from middle age with nostalgia in the pensive rearview mirror.

Honest Kid was officially released on February 21st. Hear it on Spotify & Follow Dirty Slippers on Facebook.
