On Monday 15th April, Sturm Und Drang Recordings will release ‘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.
