Suffolk-based alt-blues trio Horse Party released their debut single ‘Back To Mono’ recently through Sturm Und Drang Recordings.
“Sounding like the best mix of the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s and The Joy Formidable, Horse Party have a grungey blues rock sound that is as infectious as it is pounding.” 7bit Digital
“It’s raw and sexy (not sexy sexy, more dirty rock sexy – those husky vocals are killer) and if this is their first single then colour me impressed.” Peter Guy Liverpool Echo
Sturm Und Drang Recordings released a week ago, the well received ‘Back To Mono’ the debut single by Suffolk-based alt-blues trio Horse Party.
Horse Party formed when Shannon (drums) and Seymour (guitar/vocals) got drunk together in a church and sent Ellie (guitar/vocals) abusive messages, ordering her to join a band whose primary goal would be to make or lose a million pounds. Bound together by a shared love of Bjork, Fugazi, Cat Power and terrible films, the threesome began playing together in September 2012. A free download of one song (‘Clarion Call’) in January 2013 led to support offers with fast-rising indie stars Dingus Khan and an invitation to broadcast live from the John Peel Centre for BBC Suffolk Introducing. ‘Back To Mono’ is their first proper single. Horse Party hail from Bury St Edmunds Rock City, UK.
