It’s a double your fun Friday with yet another premiere from our friends at Hidden Volume Records. This is the title track from the new EP from Party Lights. “He’s Gonna Hurt You”. There is a cool description of this below which I totally agree with love the Joan Jett influence. And seeing that I dig Cheap Trick that’s way more than enough for me to blast this rock ‘n’ roll gem at max volume. Again, listen to the whole EP and then click on that link to get your copy, they won’t last long…..
From Hidden Volume Records:
Hailing from Brooklyn, Party Lights lives up to their billing as “The Go-Go’s meet The Real Kids” but with a little bit of bubblegum and whole lot of Cheap Trick thrown into the mix. Hi-Vo presents the “He’s Gonna Hurt You” 3 Song EP featuring a trio of power pop tracks chock full of sing-along harmonies (courtesy Anna and Joan) about girls, boys, love and hate. So catchy you’re guaranteed tooth decay.
This is single No. 4 in our Factory Series of fine records and features our newest custom hand-stamped and numbered Factory Sleeve (2 color, super heavy chipboard). Each single comes with a cool ass Party Lights 4″ sticker! Edition of 300, 125 pink, 175 black vinyl.
“Brooklyn’s Party Lights, formed in 2013, wears their power pop and new wave influences on their sleeve, fishnets and leather hot pants. Singer/guitarist Anna Anabolic was raised on a steady diet of Cheap Trick, The Go Go’s, The Real Kids and The Runaways, and when she met Joan Chew (bass, vocals), David Smilow (drums) and Elliott Klein (guitar) in a little club in New York’s East Village called The Electric Banana — don’t look for it, it’s not there anymore — she knew she’d met her match.
They’ve been playing on garage, power pop and rock n roll bills all over the Northeast with bands like Holly Golightly, Reigning Sound, The Empty Hearts, Mr. Airplane Man, Barrence Whitfield & The Savages, The Fleshtones, Stereo Total and Subsonics
Party Lights has a 7” out on British label No Front Teeth Records and released their debut LP, “I See The Lights”, last September.”
