PARTYBABY return! Get acquainted with ‘Your Old Man’

It’s two-for-two as one of 2016’s most exciting prospects unveil another smash hit.

PARTYBABY are pure youthful exuberance. Earlier this year they dropped their debut single ‘Everything’s Alright’ out of the ether, an explosive bout of FIDLAR-tinged, snarling punk-rock with a tab of anthemia snuck in up its sleeve. Today, they’re back - two-for-two, PARTYBABY’s second strike is every bit as vital as their first. Stream ‘Your Old Man’ below, premiering first on DIY.

“Do you ever talk to your old man, and does he understand what we do on the weekend?” croons the masked stranger behind these instantly infectious odes to Generation Y. A bubbling, guitar-led waltz is Frankensteined onto an electrifying stop-start thrash - it barrels in hours late to the school prom before dragging everyone by the hair to the mind-bending afterparty.

Last night PARTYBABY played their debut show at an L.A. location announced hours before via Twitter. Today, they’re surprise-unleashing track two. No build up, no churn of hype, just a desire to connect as immediately as possible. That’s what marks PARTYBABY out as one of next year’s most exciting prospects.

‘Your Old Man’ can be found below, along with a list of PARTYBABY’s confirmed upcoming live dates. If you’re stateside, you’d be a fool to miss them.
