High Hopes: Dirty Streets

After dog bites, dive bars and jailed drummers, the Memphis blues-rockers have hit paydirt.

Justin Toland is channelling a higher power. “As a band, we’ve always just been able to tap into something,” considers the Dirty Streets frontman of his songwriting approach.

“It’s something you can’t explain, but there’s a magical, mysterious thing out there. You don’t ever see it. You can’t grab it or hold onto it. But you’re always trying to follow it. On White Horse, it felt like we were trying to tap into something that was already there, y’know?”
