Since their formation in 2010 following an epic, two-week-long house party, which saw fresh faced teenagers bond over beers, cheers, tunes and partying – Melbourne six-piece Northeast Party House have continuously produced reputable original works, held an engaged loyal fan base and delivered stirring live performances (across festivals and national headline tours respectively).
Over the 7 years since their formation the band have enjoyed immense success – Their debut Album ‘Any Given Weekend’ released in 2014 saw opening track ‘The haunted’ on high rotation on triple j and currently sits over 1 million streams. The 12 months after the release of the highly acclaimed album, with four national tours of Australia (including sell out shows) under their belt, and new Australian management Fingerless Glove Projects on board, the band culminated 2015 with their international debut. The band performed shows in LA, as part of Culture Collide Festival before a string of performances in New York at CMJ Music Marathon. They then flew over the Atlantic to play an introductory sell-out show in London and a headlining slot at the famed Club NME at Koko’s. The band continued onto Germany, having been invited by renowned Berlin radio station FluxFM, to perform FluxFM Sessions before rounding out there inaugural world tour in Prague, playing Nouvelle Prague Music Festival.
These initial international live performances garnered immediate industry interest, securing the band with overseas booking representation in Paul Boswell from prominent Free Trade Agency in the UK. With a current roster that includes Happy Mondays; Wilco; The National and The Flaming Lips, the performance opportunities for the Melbourne outfit were on the onward and upward.
Impressed with the recent American showcases, Northeast Party House gained US booking agency representation at award winning Creative Artists Agency (CAA). The agency currently holds a roster that includes the likes of Beck; Fleetwood Mac; Kings Of Leon; Daft Punk; Gossip; Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Cat Power. Adding to the global awareness around the band, track ‘The Haunted’ was handpicked to feature on the soundtrack and trailer to Official 2015 Sundance Film Festival movie ‘The Overnight’.
The first half of 2016 saw the band complete the writing and recording for album number two – titled ‘Dare”. Dare’s recording was split across Melbourne and London while the band was touring the UK and Europe in May. The self-produced ‘Dare’ was mixed and mastered by in house drummer Malcolm Besley. The album was preceded by single “For You” which was instantly added to triple j (taking the total to 6 tracks added to high rotation), debuted on the Shazam and Future Hits Chart, featured in the Top Tracks Chart on iTunes and has since generated 700,000 plus streams. Returning to the UK and Europe gave the band a chance to further establish artistic prospects outside of Australia – playing major festivals The Great Escape and Dot To Dot, as well as more intimate venues across the UK, Netherlands and Germany. In January 2017 the band signed to US based publishing house Primary Wave Entertainment, providing a platform for Northeast Party House to capitalize on the best US licensing opportunities available.
Northeast Party House delighted fans by performing a silky smooth cover of Childish Gambino’s ‘Redbone’ for Like a Version, setting the tone for what should be an exciting rest of 2017, as Northeast Party House jump on the festival wagon with Groovin’ In the Moo followed by a slew of National shows for their ‘Calypso Beach tour’.
