WATCH: Northeast Party House ‘Stand Tall’ (Official Video)
Back in 2010, Melbourne dance-rockers NORTHEAST PARTY HOUSE were delivering high energy live performances in various warehouses and local venues. It was inevitable that the band would receive as big of a following as it has now.
Of course winning Triple J Unearthed in 2010 could have something to do with it, and of course their fantastic performance at the Pyramid Rock Festival the same year. Yep, these guys did a hell of a lot within that year, and guess what, they’ve done even more! NORTHEAST PARTY HOUSE have just released the music video for their single ‘Stand Tall’.
The video begins with two girls doing one of the best things a kid can do, jump on a trampoline. Then you discover that the eldest girl has shoved a pillow up her shirt. Now you will be asking why on earth has she done that? After stealing a cot, and having a crazy party where the pillow ends up being passed around the room like a game of pass the parcel, the girls end up on a bus where an older woman tries to feel the baby kick inside the girl. Little does she know that the bump is purely stuffing in a cotton case. The video is a strange twist on reality showing a darker side to society. With the band featured in the video purely as by standers, it focuses more on the story, rather than just the song.
Now ‘Stand Tall’ is set for digital release on October 5, and is the second track from the band’s debut album which, unfortunately for us, won’t be released until 2013. But fear not my fellow compatriots! NORTHEAST PARTY HOUSE are about to embark on a national tour beginning September 12!
