"Dirty Gold"

San Diego, California's Dirty Gold is '80s afro-guitar influenced project of brothers John and Lincoln Ballif. Their music sounds likes it's taken straight out of a 60's beach flick, complete with squawking seagulls, Beach House-esque guitar riffs, and plenty of warmth. Even though duo have yet to graduate high school, they've already got an EP coming out soon. Check out the drum-heavy, early morning "California Sunrise" to get a taste for the upcoming EP, Hidden Treasures, and be sure to watch the beach-themed video by Panaframe. - Altered Zones


Still working on that hot first release.



We are a band in high school out of San Diego, consisting of brothers Lincoln (18) and John Ballif (16) along with drummer Grant Nassif (17). We are inspired by the California beach scene in the 60's, rare African 4 track recordings from Zimbabwe and the like. We write about things that inspire us and try to evoke the emotions we experience.

For several years, we have all worked together in some sort of musical medium and have been trying to come up with music that fully represent us. Finally, all of our extremely varied musical influences came together into a whirlwind of sound and emotion, driven by the exciting beat of African drums. Combined with dreamy vocals and the drone of elusive harmonies, the Dirty Gold sound is complete.

Although we all can play different instruments as it is: Lincoln Ballif- Vocals, Guitar, Bass/ John Ballif- Harmonies, Guitar, Keyboards/ Grant Nassif- Drums, Percussion, Harmonies.
