Whadjuk/Perth-based indie-punk band Pot Plant House Party have today revealed their long-awaited earnest debut record ‘Worms’ – produced and engineered by band bassist Matt Templeman (Birds of Tokyo, Sly Withers, Voyager).

‘Worms’ is twelve tracks of blistering, emotional punk music, piloted by coming-of-age idealisms and heightened by the reflective dual melodies from Seb Davies and Daniel Bromely. Taking cues from Violent Soho and The Love Junkies, the record is a fuzz-laden compendium of grit and vulnerable expression. Featuring anthemic singles Safe In Your Skin, Hollow, Cyclones With Microphones and Time Machine, ‘Worms’ shines a light on the group’s inventive growth and creative proficiency.

Drummer Charlie Smith talks about the themes behind ‘Worms’: “‘Worms’ is the sum of seven years as a band formed into our most considered music to date. Bouncing between dual lead vocalists Seb and Daniel, the themes of mental health, relationships and navigating the world are consistent throughout the record. Whether it’s coated in musical heaviness or sonic tranquillity, the cathartic release of those themes remains the same. Each track is a collaboration between each member in building the piece of music into the best it can be.”

To coincide with the release, Pot Plant House Party will embark across the country on their album tour, appearing at both Raising The Vibe Festival and Scorched Festival, where they’ll collectively share the stage with beloved Australian acts Death By Denim, South Summit, RedHook and LOSER, before performing in Dharawal/Wollongong, Naarm/Melbourne, Kinjarling/Albany and their beloved hometown Whadjuk/Perth. In the live arena, the band have previously supported the likes of Beddy Rays, Sly Withers, Teenage Joans, Ruby Fields, Hope D and TOWNSTICKETS AND DETAILS HERE.

Singles from the record have seen support from triple j, triple j Unearthed, RTR FM, 4ZZZ, and Radio Adelaide. The band have also received online praise from Pilerats, Music Feeds, Milky, X-Press Magazine and scenestr.

Pot Plant House Party have fast become one of Western Australia’s most cherished acts, connecting with like-minded audiences through digital and onstage platforms. Formed by high school friends Seb Davies and Charlie Smith, the band’s stories are colourfully brought to life through their enthusiastic and authentic music, staying true to the uniting themes that bound them together, while progressing with enhanced qualities and daring ambition.

‘Worms’ is out now
