What do you get when you take five gangly kids from the middle of Texas, give them a laptop and some beat up guitars, and tell them to make a record? Well, a party of course. The conception of Lincoln Kreifels and Lucas Hughes' (vocals & guitars, respectively) bedroom laptop demos, Wild Party is the latest, and soon to be greatest, band to cross the pond from the States to the UK.
Lincoln voice sounds remarkably like Brandon Flowers, in fact Wild Party could easily be the love child of The Killers and The Strokes. However, upon closer listen, sounds like the band have taken the best parts of the sixties, seventies and eighties, put them in a blender, then shook with a few shots of vodka. Imagine The Rolling Stones, The Talking Heads and Flock of Seagulls got locked into a studio for a week with nothing but their instruments, a disco ball and a healthy supply of grain alcohol.
