Seattle is known for bands that are noisy but write catchy as hell songs. The latest is Star Party. Their new single, "Push You Aside," has this intense, swirling, buzzsaw of a guitar surrounding the whole song and droning along virtually throughout the entire song. Despite that, the beat is undeniably bouncy and makes you want to bop around instead of moshing. And then there's Carolyn Brennan's vocals which just have this endearing quality that sucks you in and makes you want to focus on her and not the noise threatening to engulf her. This is an outrageously fun song.
You can watch the video for "Push You Aside" below. Meadow Flower is due out March 11 on Feel It in the US and Tough Love everywhere else. For more on Star Party and to pre-order their album, check them out on Bandcamp.
