Throw A Wild Party!

What do you get when you take five gangly kids from the middle of Texas, give them a laptop and some beat up guitars, and tell them to make a record? Well, a Wild Party of course. Developing from its conception in Lincoln Kreifels (vocals) and Lucas Hughes' (guitars) bedroom laptop demos, the Party is now getting started in the UK with the release of double A-side single ‘Take My Advice / Life’s Too Short’. It will be released on 15 November through Friend Vs Records, on 7” vinyl and download.

Sounding remarkably like The Killers at times; Wild Party could easily be the love child of The Killers and The Strokes. However, upon closer listen, it sounds like the band have taken the best parts of the sixties, seventies and eighties, put them in a blender, then shaken with a few shots of vodka. Imagine The Rolling Stones, Talking Heads and Flock of Seagulls got locked into a studio for a week with nothing but their instruments, a disco ball and a healthy supply of grain alcohol.

Take My Advice is anthemic in its aspirations and it's catchy enough to reel in even the most cynical listener.
