If you have “party” in your name, you better back it up.  And when the first track on your debut EP starts with a person screaming, “Cuckoo!,” you’ve started to prove your point.  Hailing from Melbourne, Northeast Party House came on the scene in 2010 and released their self-titled debut EP in 2011.  In standard Down Under form, Northeast Party House‘s debut has no shortage of tropical guitars and frenzied drums.  Unique to this crew is how they use electronics, showcasing them primarily as sound effects rather than instruments, which gives each track an additional burst of energy (as if NPH needed more energy).  Perhaps the most ear-catching aspect of the band is frontman, Zach Hamilton-Reeves, whose deep, earnest tenor reflects a range and maturity that somehow still fits perfectly with the group’s youthful, party mentality.

I don’t care how old you are, next time your parents are out of town, throw a house party, blast Northeast Party House, and tell your folks that criminals broke in, got wasted and decided to throw the furniture out the window.
