Following a string of singles, Leeds quartet Party Hardly are planning to release their forthcoming debut EP Cycle Of Life this autumn.
Ahead of the EP, Party Hardly have afforded us a sample of what we might expect courtesy of single ‘Terry Shure’.
It is a magnificently jaunty, melodic and off-kilter cut of woozy flavoured indie. Centred around the dual forces of drawling vocals and hazy guitars, and following a wonky trajectory ‘Terry Shure’ evolves and swells into something colourful, imaginative and extraordinary. Shifting along a bed of jaunty guitar and steady beats, after the four and a half minutes of shape-shifting, hazy indie ambiance we’ve something as infectious as any of the finest Super Furry’s sing-a-long moments and akin to an oddball, absurdist version of Modern Life is Rubbish era Blur.
Jaunty, wonky, dreamy and melodic yet jarring – ‘Terry Shure’ is a charm and idea-filled delight.
