DIY disco punks Party Fears have shared their new single ‘Sun King II’ taken from their upcoming EP Just Friends, and we’re delighted to be premiering it here on Get In Her Ears!
Recorded at Start Together Studios in Belfast by Ryan McGroarty and mixed by Robert Kelly, the track was first written in early 2016 during the run up to the US election and just before the Brexit vote *shudders*. It targets “toxic masculinity, crash economics and rampant capitalism” but despite its turbulent context; ‘Sun King II’ is an upbeat, electro-disco anthem brought to life by forceful drum beats and defiant vocals.
Comprised of Northern Irish native Maggie Devlin and Adelaide’s Eilis Frawley, Party Fears’ music packs a glistening punch reminiscent of our faves Le Tigre, and ‘Sun King II’ is another example of the duo’s ability to take something negative and turn it in to a cathartic, dizzy antidote to the modern world.
Listen to the new single below ahead of its official release on December 14th, and follow Party Fears on Facebook for more updates.
