Enough of idle small talk, let’s get down to business… and boogying!
Northeast Party House – Pascal Cavalier
Today’s funky tune is presented to you by Northeast Party House, a six-piece party band from melbourne. After having begun playing various warehouses in 2010, the group quickly built itself a solid fan base due to their high energy live shows.
Few songs have the magic effect that this one has on me. The groovy bass line and funky guitar lines at the opening seem to command my body to move – to sway side to side and dance, as the popular expression puts it, like no one’s watching. Which is mostly the case when I dance: Anyone who sees me bust out my moves shies away and averts their eyes. I don’t blame them, my dancing usually isn’t a sight most people appreciate.
The band has yet to release an LP, though they are aiming for 2013 (“it all depends on how quickly we can write some good tracks”). Their eponymous debut EP of 2011, however, has already left positive marks in the music world.
Pascal Cavalier was released as a single on July 13, 2012.
