This is textural, lush and bursts like confetti. A vibrant return from Holiday Party!

This just ignites with so much life. It's an instant spirit lifter. Life is great with this song in it!

uplifting, joyous pop that reaches for the stars and takes a million hearts with it.

I really dig this. It feels exactly like when you get a straight run inbound on Coronation Drive without having to stop at a single set of traffic lights. Pure, effortless, bliss.

while it might not hit quite the highs of Dream State - possibly my fav aus song of this year so far - this is a real ear worm that in my mind cements the Holiday Party sound. Into it.

I mentioned this on air when I played it on TOPS - which, by the way, was a huge jam - the sample style production reminds me of Superorganism, especially at the start. This one's addictive. I love it.

once again with holiday party, it's not a big flashy fire that rises high into the sky, it's a small smouldering one that burns longer and will keep you warm all night instead of singeing your eyebrows.

Living up to your moniker more than ever on this, a track that feels like pure escapism

Exquisitely made pop from Holiday Party - once again! Love the way Mel's vocals trail about ethereally and there's this dreamy textured track to pour over.

This is a breath of fresh air isn't it? Bright and full of colour, the Holiday Party are living up to their moniker with ease. Love the way you flirt with sounds rather than engaging Everything All The Time.

I keep hearing something new in here - but it never sounds too messy. We've heard Mel sing in different outfits across time, but this brings out something new for her. Those strings halfway through are very tasty.

Got to 3 minutes and hadn't realised my mouth was open the whole time, I was so immersed. What an introduction.

i like how the crunch in production works in with the twinkles, strings and cloud nine vocals. sending a postcard to myself from this holiday party just so i don't forget about it.

I totally see where your influences like The Avalanches comes from. You infuses this unique kind of artistry and imagination that leaves you splashing all sorts of colours and ideas in your mind. Huge fan!

This is my new favourite thing. Smart and with an air of refinement but it's still a heap of fun too.

rough around the edges for all the right reasons, the hi hat hits are so esoteric. you won't find hi hats like that anywhere... sucker for good percussion like this.
