Northeast Party House bring the party home. And it’s one you don’t want to miss.

Biography

Since forming in Melbourne Australia in 2010 (and being ‘Unearthed’ by triple j that same year for their song ’Dusk’), Northeast Party House have built a cult following thanks to their electrifying live shows, and songs combining the heady exhilaration of dance music with pop hooks and rock backbone. These five young guys – most still in their early 20s – have brought the party to stages ranging from the Falls and St Kilda festivals to national support slots for acts such as Kimbra, The Mystery Jets and Midnight Juggernauts.

For the uninitiated, an early self-titled EP – which featured live favourite ‘Embezzler’ – and a couple of digital singles, ‘Pascal Cavalier’ and ‘Stand Tall’, gave a taste of the band. However, it wasn’t the full picture, says keyboardist Sean Kenihan.

“Everything has always revolved around our live show,” Kenihan says, “Playing live has always been a very different experience to [just] listening to our music.”

Not Anymore, with the release of debut album Any Given Weekend, Northeast Party House finally bottled their live genie into 10 cohesive tracks that were destined to ignite parties all around the nation, marking one of the most accomplished debut albums heard in 2014 with tracks The Haunted, Sick Boy and Youth Allowance all making high rotation on triple j.

Any Given Weekend is Northeast Party House’s ode to partying – the good, the bad and the ugly – and the band members’ gloriously shambolic ride into adulthood. Party guests on Any Given Weekend include love, lust, friendship, bright lights, sticky walls and the odd stimulant, along with songwriting chops aplenty.

This Autumn saw the band give one last victory lap to Any Given Weekend, with the Double Darts Tour. Widely regarded as a Falls Festival 2014 highlight and off the back of a sold out Kick Ons tour last September, this tour saw the band sell out even more venues across 13 national shows including performances on the West Coast. This tour marked the last string of shows played before bunking down to write material for their sophomore album.
