September 29th, 2016 by

“New Blood” is our weekly feature spotlighting new bands from around the world! See below for info on how to submit. Now, check out some killer new shit…

Band name:
BODY PARTY

Date & location formed:
January 2016, Philadelphia.

Reason for forming:
All of us wanted to try something new, half the band was new to their instruments but all enjoyed playing.

What are your lyrics about?
A mix of nihilistic self-reflecting stuff, political statements, and just straight up talkin’ shit.

How would you describe your sound?
A lot of noise and chaos with underlying groovy drum beats.

What’s in the future for this band?
Well, I think currently we’re all trying to figure out what we want for the next project. We’ve made a lot of changes, constantly wanting to construct our sound in a way we all like, and make the best stuff we can. Eventually we’ll be releasing a 10-12 song record, either late 2016 or early 2017. We’re all looking forward to it and we’re all pretty confident that it is a big step up from the demo, with some good changes.

Avoiding smug Rhetoric, we all feel a tension, a estranged urgency.

Broody scrambled grey matter.

Pace: me and Tj had just got out of a band and wanted to be in a new one already, Jessie hadn’t been in a band for a while and wanted to start one, and Nelson had just started learning bass so it just made sense especially because we all wanted the same sound.
