Listen: Northeast Party House - Perfect Lines

Perfect Lines is a raw, wild beast of a single.

Any Given Weekend, Northeast Party House's debut album, was a marring of their rock roots doused in fiery synths and then set on fire with a flamethrower. Their latest single Perfect Lines is gritty, guitar-lick heavy number separating them from the over-used reference points of Bloc Party. Also for a moment can we just admire the simplicity of their cover art, it looks like something you'd draw on one of your textbook after a full year of doodling with bad colours included because you only have three highlighters. Albeit a lot better done as most people cannot draw. But back to Perfect Lines! It almost slips into a psych-feel at times with reverb washing over on the guitars and bass but the very core of this song is rock. Gone is the clean riffs that you could pick out in tracks like The Haunted replaced by a more lo-fi mood none of their music to date has contained. Perfect Lines is also the first hint at what Northeast Party House's new album will sound like once they record it after their Later S'traya' tour:
