Lakeview Loft will host a night of “soul-hop” this Thursday, Feb. 4.
Portland, Oregon’s Dirty Revival plays the Stateline venue as part of an album release tour for their self-titled debut.
“The album is about honesty,” said lead singer Sarah Clarke in a press release for the album. “It is candid and sincere, the same way we as a group approach music in general. ‘Breathe’ is a song decrying the racial tensions in our society as we see it. ‘Lay Me Down’ is about the brutal affect addiction has on people. ‘Take It Off’ is a take on lust. ‘Make It’ is about the need for personal betterment. And then there are songs like ‘Dirty Love,’ which highlights our passion for performance. Essentially, every song on this album is an unadulterated take on music and the world that we see every day.”
The group’s influences include Parliament Funkadelic, Aretha Franklin, James Brown, Bill Withers, Charles Bradley, Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, D’Angelo and the Roots, among others.
“There’s a lot of throwback soul out there that’s really great, and [it’s] a big influence for us, but we differ in that we’re not trying to 100-percent emulate that style,” said bassist Jon Shaw in the release. “We take a lot of pop music cues from the 70s, 80s, and 90s and then use classic soul as a lens to focus our ideas into a song. With this album we’re casting a wide net of influences to help us hone our sound. After this whole process, I think we’re really starting to get there.”
Lakeview Loft is located at 148 U.S. Highway 50 in Stateline.
