Northeast Party House are back with their first new music of 2023. The Melbourne six piece have announced the release of their new single Brain Freeze coming mid-March 2023, their first release since 2022’s triple j’s Hottest 200 single Cranky Boy.
Brain Freeze is a certified banger, opening with a stripped back first verse featuring lead vocalist Zachary Hamilton-Reeves’ punchy vocals over an instantly hooky electric guitar riff before ripping into a dirty chorus that is set to ignite dancefloors and festival goers across the country!
On the track, Northeast Party House muse “Brain Freeze existed for a long time as a demo before finally finding itself this year. The original idea was written in 2017, well before most songs from ‘SHELF LIFE’ were written, so it’s been brewing for a while. We always loved how the demo combined this 90s guitar riff with an aggressive dance beat, it sounded like Blur and Bloc Party had some Frankenstein baby. When we were working on Brain Freeze it was all about saying yes to every idea and staying in the fun, rough, creative ‘writing phase’ for as long as possible, before thinking about honing in on an idea or giving any constructive criticism. We kept Brain Freeze intentionally simple, excited by the idea of leaving room to dance and breathe as your head is spinning around.”
To celebrate the upcoming drop of Brain Freeze the band today have announced the national Brain Freeze tour, kicking off in their hometown of Melbourne on May 20! The tour sees the renowned alternative dance outfit take their six-member electric live show to theatres and venues in all mainland capital cities across May & June. Tickets go on sale 9am Friday March 3.
It’ll be the first chance to see new single Brain Freeze performed live as well as dancing the night away to iconic tracks from the band’s extensive back catalogue such as Calypso Beach, Magnify, Dominos and last year’s dance floor filler Cranky Boy.
Warming up the crowd each night will be in-demand Melbourne DJ/producer DAWS with special guests in each city yet to be announced.
