NORTHEAST PARTY HOUSE

Music Video of the Day: Northeast Party House: "Perfect Lines" (2015)

Not going to lie - I’m pretty sure this video was shot with a camera attached to a clothesline... Not that that’s a problem, because “Perfect Lines”, the latest track from Northeast Party House totally fits that aesthetic. The backyard shoot suits the Melbournians’ backyard style of rock perfectly, and you can see it for yourself here:

Illy, Thundamentals, Jebediah and more to feature at 2015's Festival of the Sun festival this December!

Northeast Party House line up some sweet Australian shows before heading overseas!

Northeast Party House's recently announced London show sold out within days, so if that's any indication of how well these boys are going to be received when they head overseas for a round of touring this year...they're in for a good time. The Melbourne party rats aren't going to slink out of the country however, instead they're throwing a run of farewell parties across the country this August before they go and play their first shows in Europe, the UK and USA through September.

Live Review: Northeast Party House + Food Court + West Thebarton Brothel Party - Adelaide Unibar (04.04.15)

It's been a while since Northeast Party House had performed in Adelaide and going off the reaction the Melbourne band received from the Unibar crowd on Easter Saturday, it'd been far too long for their liking. Bringing the 'Double Darts Tour' to Adelaide and then Ballarat this weekend, NPH showed no signs of weariness or complacency as they took to the stage and ripped the Unibar a new one.

the AU Weekend Gig Guide: Easter Long Weekend Edition!

While some of you may be looking forward to a long weekend of maxing out surrounded by multiple Easter chocolate wrappers, feeling content and perhaps slightly sick from sugar, there's heaps of live shows happening around the country! With Bluesfest happening in Byron Bay over the Easter weekend break, a whole slew of artists are tag teaming in and out of venues down the coast for some special headline shows, some of which the AU will be heading along to check out! Have a peek at the below for just some of our gig picks this weekend.

Our Top 5 Performances from Falls Festival Lorne!


Photos: John Goodridge

Bundling ourselves up and hitting the road on a sunny Sunday afternoon, myself and fellow AU writer and music nut Bridget Hustwaite rolled on down the coast to Lorne for the 2014 Falls Festival. Hungover and still waking up, we drove back to Melbourne early New Year's Day morning, already discussing the hits and misses of the festival. Below are just a couple of thoughts on some of the stand out bands on the line up this year.

Photo Gallery: Falls Festival Day Two - Lorne, Victoria (29.12.14)

The second day of the Falls Festival at Lorne sees the rest of the campers arrive to scattered showers and winds which saw a few tents blow down. Down on the Valley Stage things were heating up with artists such as Milky Chance and Australia's own Temper Trap crowd favorites. DZ Deathrays stepped in at the last minute with Jamie XX and Big Freedia closing the night. The mood was expectant for what the rest of the festival would bring. Photos by John Goodridge.

Live Review: Falls Festival Day 1 - North Byron Parklands (30.12.14)

The misting stations offered the only reprieve. The barometer was pushing higher and higher and with barely any shade to be found, walking through a green tunnel that sprayed water at you seemed like the best option. Shirts clung to skin, whether through sweat or water spray it was impossible to tell, as the second Falls Festival in Byron Bay shifted into life.

Festival Review: Falls Festival Day Two ft. The Temper Trap + Jamie xx - Lorne, Victoria (29.12.14)

While the Grand Theatre took centre stage last night, Monday at Falls Festival Lorne was all about partying in the Valley. A great line up of bands and artists performed through the day and night, not letting the freezing cold weather and rain deter them - the crowd wasn't letting the dropping temperature get them either.

Single Stream: Flamingo ft. Hurt "Drip Away" (2014)

Coming off a highly impressive year, Adelaide trio FLAMINGO are back with another delicious tune as well as a new deal with Select Music and etcetc.

Daniel Lee Kendall, The Griswolds, DZ Deathrays and more for the Mountain Sounds Festival in February!

The boutique event has secured some amazing Australian talent for the event, taking place at the Mt Penang Parklands, with more to be announced in December. Catering to music lovers across the board, Mountain Sounds is a guaranteed party, with onsite camping facilities available, punters don't have to worry about travelling from the Central Coast back to Sydney or elsewhere in NSW.

'Ouija Beats' Halloween party to feature Northeast Party House, Basenji and more at Luna Park in Sydney!

Luna Park's Big Top is going to get it's freak on this Halloween, with a whole bunch of talented musicmakers joining up for one hell of an October 31st party! 'Ouija Beats' will see the electronic-based bands and producers perform alongside circus performers, with Luna Park offering punters two hours of free rides on the night from 6pm. That's right - free rides. You can win prizes for having the most inventive costumes and with Uber on board to get you to and from the venue with a $40 credit, you're guaranteed a sick time!

Dan Sultan, Ásgeir and more join the Falls Festival in second artist announcement!

The Falls Festival line up for Lorne, Marion and Byron Bays just got a whole lot bigger, with the crew behind one of the country's favourite New Year festivals dropping their second artist announcement this morning! With a bill already boasting the likes of Alt-J, Cold War Kids, Bluejuice and more, we now see whole new range of local and international talent set to perform and win more hearts.
