Plus support from GIANT PARTY

Giant Party are a soul-splashed four piece based in London Town. On July 7th 2017 they release their second single proper called ‘Tongue Tied Lightning’ via Label Fandango, and a cool, smooth number it is too, wherein soft focus keys and beats supplement some suitably supple vocals. Indeed, there is a slinky, subtle funk feel to it all which is casually reminiscent of both Blood Orange and Twin Shadow. The track will be premiered by Noisey on 5th July.

For Giant Party have perfected a sound which is living in the ‘80s but also alive to the thrilling pan-generic possibilities of the modern age. The live show is a smoothly genteel riot of fluorescent lights and fluid, lithe grooves, embodied by a guitarist throwing around a Spandau Ballet fringe and a singer rolling around the stage amidst the shocking pinks and luminous lime greens. Far from any throwback tribute act however, Giant Party behave like an already-excellent alt.rock band who have just discovered the silky delights of Top Of The Pops circa 1982.

“One essential new release to get obsessed with…like an extension of Twin Shadow’s early work – rough-around-the-edges but brimming with melody” - DIY Magazine
