Today, our new music spotlight is on Giant Party
Line-up: Allan Harrod: Voice / Guitar / Keys, Mark Hyden: Guitar, Hugh Fox: Percussion / Drums, Tim Harrod: Voice / Keys
About: Giant Party are an alternative, new wave four piece based in London taking inspiration from Talking Heads, Pixies, Arcade Fire & Peter Gabriel. Their 2 EP’s and handful of standalone singles released over the last 18 months have garnered critical acclaim from the likes of Noisey, DIY, Line Of Best Fit, Clash, The Guardian, and BBC Radio 1 & 6Music. Impressively, Elton John is a signed-up fan having played several of the band’s tracks on his Beats1 show. The band’s incendiary live show has seen them grace stages across UK & European festivals: The Great Escape, Live at Leeds, Stag and Dagger, Twisterella Festival, Metropolis Festival (Rotterdam), Indiestad (Amsterdam) and Pete The Monkey Festival (Normandy), whilst playing sold out headline shows at home in London at The Lexington & The Sebright Arms.
What Hidden Herd say: Giant Party’s latest track begins with a chugging quality, littered with funk-laden fills and psych-kissed undertones. The result is a hard-to-ignore listenability – one that’ll command your attention in an instant before pulling you in fully-willing.
For fans of: Talking Heads, Pixies
