“Setting aside the darkly ear-wormy melodies, haunting vocals, and refreshingly crisp grunge-pop that goes into Everyone Is Dirty’s sound, it’s singer Sivan Gur-Arieh’s violin slicing sweetly above the chaos of a final chorus, adding a heightened sense of gothic romance to a bridge that sets the Oakland art-rock quartet apart from the current fuzzy, grungy masses. It’s also a big part of the band’s charisma, an invitingness coming through music that technically should feel cold – sure, Gur-Arieh’s distinctive whisper-wail would be at home providing the soundtrack to an artsy vampire flick, but you also trust her, and the weirdness, in the same way you trust the Pixies’ or Sonic Youth’s weirdness; it doesn’t seem to be an affectation.” -Emma Silvers, San Francisco Bay Guardian


“Combining the grit of 90’s era Sonic Youth with the pop sensibilities of Jenny Lewis and Rilo Kiley, the Oakland’s Everyone is Dirty have established themselves as one of the East Bay’s most exciting emerging acts. Lead singer Sivan Gur-Arieh’s darkly seductive vocals and electric violin are the highlight of the group’s transfixing live performances.” – Ethan Varian, The Deli Magazine


“Oakland’s Everyone Is Dirty is a dreamy pop band that can smoothly cut to heavy, noisy guitars and back to the sweet vocals of Sivan Gur-Arieh. Musically there’s a lot of influence from bands like the Pixies, but with Gur-Arieh as the front woman, the band has created a whole new animal.” – Tony DuShane, San Francisco Chronicle


“There are seemingly two different bands within Oakland’s quickly rising indie-quartet, Everyone is Dirty. One is the core rhythm section, who play steady blasts of catchy, heavy alt-rock riffs much like the Pixies, Superchunk and Dinosaur Jr. The other is singer/violinist Sivan Gur-Arieh, who is a walking art project. Her voice ranges from a cool Kim Deal to a highly-expressive PJ Harvey. Her violin, which is attached to a range of effects pedals, adds a tense layer of sonic texture to the crisp ’90s alternative guitar riffs. And her stage presence-with its impossible-to-turn-away-from, almost interpretive dancing-style-is mesmerizing. The band walks a fine line between catchy ear-worm rock tunes and a Greenwich Village avant-garde college thesis project.” – Aaron Carnes, SF Station


“Everyone Is Dirty has been releasing a steady stream of new material since we first told you about them a little over a year ago, including this brand new video for “Dirtbag Side Effect”. One of Everyone Is Dirty’s strengths is the quirky weirdness of lead singer-violinist Sivan, and the video does a great job showcasing the energy she brings to their live performances. It also shows her wailing on her electric violin, which truly is a joy to watch in person.” – Russell Jelinek, The Bay Bridged


“Everyone is Dirty turned the energy up with their own distinctive blend of punk-tinged art rock. Led by powerhouse front woman Sivan Gur-Arieh, who shreds an electric violin like a rock and roll sorceress, the band exuded an authentic strangeness that was both refreshing and jarring.” – Lauren Espena, Impose
