Conduct Party – S/T EP (Independent)

Originally formed in 2009 when drummer Roald Dietzman and bassist Jacob Weaver began playing together; they were quickly joined by Jason Miller on trumpet and guitar, and guitarist / singer, Austin Ryan-Mas - thus Conduct Party was born.

The Seattle-based quartet take their inspiration mainly from contemporary(ish) UK post-punk and indie artists such as Franz Ferdinand and Bloc Party, so clean, funky beats and pinpoint guitars dominate, but equally they haven’t forgotten the importance of proper songs, and there’s no shortage of them on their debut five-track collection. Indeed, opening cut “Terminal Man” is a peach. Rhythmically resolute with a fine vocal performance, it’d sound perfectly at home on BBC6 Music, XFM, or any UK alternative station.

“Clean Slate '08” arrives with a stutter, and then delivers an insistent vocal hook, and a bassline that burrows deep. “Ballistic Femme Fatalistic” begins slower, with an Arctic Monkeys’ feel to it, before sliding into noisier, jazzier realms, and “The Hedge That Wraps Around Our House” is primarily dominated by Dietzman’s discordant drums, but it eventually settles, and the end result is one of the EP’s standout tracks.

Bio

Conduct Party:
A satisfying combination of complementary guitar work combined with memorable lyrical hooks and a driving rhythmical backbone. Composed of a traditional rock instrumental structure, Conduct Party cultivates sounds that defines a new variety of indie rock, power pop and post punk infused music - a variety of music that is primarily influenced by tallboys, well crafted bicycles and barbecued meat.

Conduct Party was formed in the heart of Seattle's Capitol Hill in 2009 when drummer Roald Dietzman and bassist Jacob Weaver started casually trading musical ideas. Guitarist Jason Miller joined to add witty guitar leads, and after several band name and line-up changes, Austin Ryan-Mas filled the roster adding depth and out-of-the-box creativity to the Conduct Party experience.

February 2013 marks the release of Conduct Party's self released and self titled EP. With over three years of experience together Conduct Party has played a substantial set of shows sharing the stage with a variety of locally and nationally known Northwest acts.
