They are the best of times. They are the worst of times. We all love a party, but they don’t always go the way we’d like them to. Northeast Party House knows this well, as do many of the characters inhabiting their hotly anticipated debut album, Any Given Weekend, out May 16 through Stop Start.
Since forming in Melbourne Australia in 2010 (and being 'Unearthed' by triple j that same year for their song 'Dusk'), Northeast Party House have built a cult following thanks to their electrifying live shows, and songs combining the heady exhilaration of dance music with pop hooks and rock backbone. These five young guys - most still in their early 20s - have brought the party to stages ranging from the Falls and St Kilda festivals to national support slots for acts such as Jungle Giants, Midnight Juggernauts and Ball Park Music.
"Everything has always revolved around our live show. Playing live has always been a very different experience to listening to our (recorded) music. And that's always been the confusion with us." says Sean Kenihan
Not anymore. With Any Given Weekend, Northeast Party House have finally bottled their live genie into an album of 10 cohesive tracks that are destined to ignite parties all around the nation, in one of the most accomplished debut albums you'll hear in 2014.
Any Given Weekend is Northeast Party House's ode to partying - the good, the bad and the ugly - and the band members' gloriously shambolic ride into adulthood. Party guests on Any Given Weekend include love, lust, friendship, bright lights, sticky walls and the odd stimulant, along with songwriting chops aplenty.
Album opener 'The Haunted' - released as a single on March 14 and already enjoying high rotation on triple j - creeps up with mesmeric, sparse beats, bass and keys, and smooth vocals from Hamilton-Reeves before a sonic ambush of searing wall-of-sound keys thumps you into next week.
Produced by band members Sean Kenihan and Malcolm Besley, (Besley who's clocked up production experience with the likes of Snakadaktal & The Holidays) the pair recorded most of the songs in their own home studios.
With Any Given Weekend, Northeast Party House have brought the party home. And it's one you don't want to miss.
"Northeast Party House demand attention on stage with their playful but entrancing presence and clean, sophisticated song-writing at their core." - Beat Magazine
"The bands infectious brand of psychedelic dance rock had people jumping out of their skinny jeans for the entire set." - Tonedeaf
