UTG TV: Dirty Heads Discuss ‘Sound of Change,’ Canada Cold And Internet Haters


Dirty Heads fill up a unique niche in the current music market. By all technical and logistical standpoints the band is vastly successful. This constitutes national headlining tours as well as commercially incredible record sales on their latest release. You may have first been turned onto Dirty Heads when they did a collaboration with Rome Ramirez (Sublime With Rome). What is interesting about the band is that they are genuinely indefinable, especially if you take a listen to their brand new record, Sound of Change.

When the band came through Huntington, NY, to perform at The Paramount alongside Pepper and AER, UTG TV decided it was crucial to get a few moments to speak with Jared Watson, one of the frontmen of the group. We discussed the new record in an all encompassing conversation that detailed how the band transitions the intricately recorded album onto the stage as a full blown production.

Watson also tackles some other topics ranging from internet haters and what it’s like to perform reggae-esque-California-skater tunes while it’s snowing in Canada. Simply speaking, Watson provides intelligible insights into the career of his band as well as the music industry as a whole. This is one of those interviews that was better left in long form than taking to the chopping board. We hope you enjoy it.
