Bio

Drawing influence from artists like The Avalanches, Beach House and JDilla, Holiday Party builds songs with homemade samples, creating junkyard pop music.

Holiday Party is the brainchild of Luke McDonald and Mel Tickle and now a growing collective, with Scott Bromiley joining soon after. Born from collaborating on various projects in Brisbane, the band works conceptually on the premise of a twisted end to a house party. Something is not quite right at this party.

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.
