Malika Dahl The album “Dirty Lie“ is a compilation of well written rock songs. The music is on point, the lyrics are interesting, but sometimes hard to understand over the music. Ivan Beecrofts voice is slightly off key from time to time, but fits in perfectly with the crunchy sounds he is presenting throughout the album.

“Insane” starts with a dramatic guitar pick edge dragged down the strings, after this gains your attention the drums bring you into the song sounding like Green Day’s Dookie album but more uptempo. The lyrics in the verse have a deliberate disjointed character about them and are delivered in a slightly manic way which complements the gritty guitars. This song has a deceptively complex arrangement considering the simple chord progression, but surprisingly still manages to remain accessible. Even though the lyrics don’t seem to form a coherent narrative throughout the duration of the song you still find it impossible to not gravitate towards this song. The well placed stops showcase Ivan’s skills as a musician and songwriter. The film clip adds another dimension by being made in such a way as to present the viewer with a visual collage of disjointed footage. At first glance it gives the impression that it was slapped together without too much thought going into it, when watched more intently you can appreciate the artist’s take on the fast pace of life in the inner city suburbs of Melbourne. The bendy guitar solos add a type of simplistic raw energy and are cleverly slotted into the arrangement. This track with its raw energy is difficult to dislike due to the clever arrangement that leaves you wanting to hear more.
