I knew it had to be too good to be true. For months I’ve been a glutton, indulging in whatever tunes I want, whenever and wherever. I’m telling all my friends, Android phones are way better than Apple, Spotify rips over iTunes. That last bit I still consider true. But this week I hit a road bump in what seemed to be a journey too smooth to be true. The debut EP from Wild Party finally came out, and it’s good, and it’s nowhere to be seen on Spotify.
I took to Soundcloud and was rewarded for my faithfulness as this magically consistent first attempt, appropriately named All Nighter, was fit for play. The stand out is still obviously the fun and committed single from earlier in the year, When I Get Older. However, it’s great to see them equal the stand out track with gems of pop brilliance like Take My Advice and Out Right.
Imagine an Indie band called Wild Party, and that’s what they are. Whether their tumultuous lyrics steer us towards romanticism, despair and hopelessness, drunken stupour or any which way, they manage to stay fun, sprightly, catchy and rocky. This is one to keep an eye on.
