Following a string of singles and last autumn’s debut EP, Leeds-based indie-pop foursome Party Hardly are readying the release of their second EP this summer.
Ahead of the new EP, the quartet has afforded us a taste of what we can expect courtesy of single ‘The Hopskotch Man’.
While born from frustration depression that tormented guitarist Matt Pownall following an injury resulting in reconstruction surgery he was left bed-bound for some months, ‘The Hopskotch Man’ comes packed as a bright, upbeat and breezy indie-pop jangle. Fuzzed-up and melodic, it fizzes and whizzes with an effervescent vibe amid a hazy atmosphere and dreamy aura. It is easy on the ear and adorned with some of the catchiest, most compelling pop hooks in the known universe. Dreamy and melodic, it’s charm, allure and delight is hard to resist.
