Leeds upstarts Party Hardly share their newest fuzzy anthem Football, the second track taken from their forthcoming debut EP Cycle Of Life out this autumn.
Holed up in MJ of Hookworms’ Suburban Home Studio recording their latest material, the indie rockers show clear variations in their distinctive sound with gritty vocals, vibrant hooks and hazy guitars encompassing their most forward-thinking release to date.
Having already supported the likes of INHEAVEN and The Magic Gang, the four-piece continue to adopt a key role in the city’s thriving music scene and will be playing alongsideTrudy and the Romance and Gengahr in the coming months.
Discussing the release, the band stated: “Football was written about general gender inequality, referring to how the unequal treatment or perception of individuals – wholly or partly due to their gender – is still very much prevalent in our western, spangled society. With our women’s national and club teams not receiving anywhere near the amount of pay/coverage that the men’s do, the future of our beloved sport depends on the effort we put in now”.
Produced by Hookworms’ MJ (Drenge, The Magic Gang, Honeyblood), Party Hardly’sFootballis out 5th October and will be available on all digital platforms.
Party Hardly is Tom Barr (vocals, guitar), Matt Pownall (guitar, vocals), Stan Braddock (bass, vocals), Lachlan Banner (drums)
