Wild Party announce debut UK single on Friends vs Records
Live dates with The Wombats
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, 2010 through Friend Vs Records, on 7" vinyl and download.
Kreilfels' voice sounds remarkably like Brandon Flowers; in fact 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.
Life's Too Short is a catchy blend of pop melodies prancing atop dance rhythms and lushly backed by swirling B3s, tube-driven guitars and samples that could have been pulled from Mac or been looped off an AM radio.
Wild Party will tour the UK in October supporting The Wombats, as well as their own shows.
