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.

The only way to listen to this song is whilst twirling an umbrella a la 1952 Dancing In The Rain.
