Holiday Party are a Brisbane based indie/electro-pop collective (founded by Luke McDonald and Mel Tickle, recently joined by Scott Bromiley) who released their first single “I’m Still Here” about two months ago. They are no newcomers however, having worked with a lot of Australian acts. Among their influences they name artists like The Avalanches, Beach House, Animal Collective and J Dilla.
“I’m still here” has glitchy, chopped up samples and I haven’t heard a new track like this in a while. One that really grows on you and stays interesting after a good amount of plays.
