The Dirty Lie album was released in February 2016. All the tracks were recorded and produced by Ivan in his studio in Burwood. This latest release has Ivan’s distinctive sound and style looking a lot more refined than his last album Restless Soul, his no nonsense take on modern rock and uncompromising lyrics are well honed on this album, this is a release that has you glued to the edge of your seat from start to finish. This album has the potential to become permanently etched into history, the catchy riffs and melodies are definitely worthy of earworm status. The film clip that was made for the track “Insane” has Ivan’s earlier influences of 70’s punk rock stamped all over it, the clip was mostly filmed in Brunswick Street, Fitzroy.
Dirty Lie is an album that epitomises an artist at the peak of his career. From start to finish it showcases the songwriting genius of an artist that can effortlessly capture the mood of the times. Whether its dealing with the politics of the day in songs like “Dirty Lie” or “Amnesia”, or touching on certain social issues, the brutal honesty and sincerity are hard to dismiss. This album definitely has a social conscience and it wouldn’t surprise me if it manages to define a generation. The defiant mood of this work is in stark contrast to the production line of manufactured carbon copies that mainstream music has continually produced.
