Since 2014, DIRK. has been walking a winding musical path strewn with praise and love. Today DIRK. is the most popular – and most played – Belgian indie act. The singles “Artline”, “Stay Indoors” and “Hit” charted in De Afrekening simultaneously (with “Hit” claiming #1 spot for three weeks) – an absolute first in the thirty-year existence of “Flanders’ most beautiful list”. On 20 November DIRK. reinforced their new-found status with their sophomore effort “Cracks in Common Sense“, an irresistible collection of earworms for their legion of hungry fans. Like their first long player, the new album is essential to the bone and contains several guaranteed hits. It’s a record of which DIRK. themselves say: “Not to yank your chain but… you’d better brace for impact.” Consider yourselves warned. Last week the band released “Komrad Shoes”. On the occasion of the release you can also buy some fancy Dirk. Komrads sneakers (limited edition!). Proceeds from this sale will support LIVE2020. Order your shoes here.
