Over the past ten years, Northeast Party House have performed on festival stages and sold out headline gigs throughout Australia as well as playing to thousands of fans across Europe and the US. Now, following a three-year hiatus, they’re back with their most sophisticated album to date, Shelf Life. Mixed by Drummer Malcolm Besley, the record was motivated by a desire to create “huge dance moments” paired with their most thoughtful, personal lyrics yet.
Fun is still on the menu, of course -- the title track is about a 17-hour bender in a Berlin club -- but there’s plenty of space for reflection, too, about relationships, accountability and the inevitable lows that follow extreme highs.
In short, it’s the sound of a group of young artists making the best music of their already impressive career. Shelf Life might be the work of a great party band, but it’s also smart enough to resonate on and off dance floors all over the world.
