Northeast Party House are undoubtedly a party band, but don’t let that fool you. The Melbourne six-piece might be known for their unapologetically hedonistic lyrics and raucous live shows, but behind their songs of excess and frivolity is a band of surprising substance.


Almost entirely self-produced, the band, who met as students at a Melbourne high school, specialise in detailed melodies, sugary hooks, exhilarating beats and rhythmic guitars. They occupy a unique position in the Australian music scene as one of the few acts who are equally accomplished on stage and in the studio. This comes to the fore at their thrilling live gigs, where skilful guitars and drums retain the feeling of a band, while dynamic electronic elements heighten the party vibe. 


After bursting onto the scene in 2010 when they won national youth broadcaster triple j’s Unearthed competition, Northeast Party House found a devoted following -- particularly among their fun-loving millennial peers -- fast. A 2011 self-titled EP was followed in 2014 by hit debut album Any Given Weekend containing anti-authoritarian anthems ‘Youth Allowance’ and ‘Any Given Weekend’, and in 2016 they released second album Dare, revealing a growing maturity and complexity to the band’s sound without losing any of their infectious energy.  

Since forming, Northeast Party House have performed on festival stages and sold out headline gigs throughout Australia as well as playing to thousands of fans across Europe and the US. Following a three-year hiatus, the band returned with their most sophisticated album to date, Shelf Life which spawned fan favourite ‘Dominos’ and ARIA Gold Single ‘Magnify’.  

Mixed by drummer Malcolm Besley, the record was motivated by a desire to create “huge dance moments” paired with their most thoughtful, personal lyrics yet. The band also teamed up with an external producer for the first time, Kim Moyes of The Presets.  

Fun was still on the menu, of course -- the title track is about a 17-hour bender in a Berlin club -- but there was plenty of space for reflection, too, about relationships, accountability and the inevitable lows that follow extreme highs.  


In short, it was the sound of a group of young artists making the best music of their already impressive career. Shelf Life might be the work of a great party band, but it was also smart enough to resonate on and off dancefloors all over the world.  


Fast forward to 2022 and Northeast Party House took to the stage at Splendour In The Grass for the very first time and during their set premiered their (at the time) unreleased single ‘Cranky Boy’


Showing no signs of stopping, Northeast Party House released their single ‘Brain Freeze’ and embarked on the national Brain Freeze tour in 2023! The tour saw the renowned alternative dance outfit take their six-member electric live show to theatres and venues in all mainland capital cities across May & June. 


2024 has kicked off with Northeast Party House dropping their newest singles ‘Wish We Could’ and ‘Dark Boy’, along with the huge announcement of their fourth studio album Enhancer slated for release on 17th May 2024!
