Following a string of singles and last autumn’s debut EP, Leeds-based outfit Party Hardly are readying the release of their second EP Modern Strife is Snobbish.
Ahead of the new EP, primed for release before the summer is out, the quartet already shared bright, upbeat and breezy indie-pop jangle ‘The Hopskotch Man’. Now, zoning in on the July 26th release date, they have shared another cut in ‘Rats in the Kitchen’. It is much more muscular than its predecessor as they unleash a feverish onslaught of aggressive punk-laced indie, propelled by the combined rhythmic power of their exhilarating bass and drum combo. The groove is quite danceable, in a skittish kind of way as its dosed with a healthy blast of meaty and sometimes jangly guitars, jerky riffs, and topped off by rowdy and raucous vocals. ‘Rats in the Kitchen’ is a feverish onslaught of aggressive punk laced with jangly guitars and jerky riffs. Loud, aggressive and highly charged – ‘Rats in the Kitchen’ leaves nothing in the tank
Tune into ‘Rats in the Kitchen’ below, and their Blur referencing EP Modern Strife is Snobbish is out on July 26.
