EP Review: All Nighter

Title:  All Nighter (Big Cartel)
Artist:  Wild Party (Official, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, SoundCloud, Last.fm

Wild Party plays modern power pop / indie rock in the vein of artists like The Killers, Vampire Weekend, and We Are Scientists.  What makes All Nighter work is that the songs are full of atmosphere, driven by crescendoing vocals that gives the EP an equally modern and ‘80s nostalgic feel.  These songs are fun and catchy and sound like something you’d hear in a coming-of-age teen drama/comedy (that is not meant as an insult by the way…think Juno or Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist type films).  Wild Party certainly has a great pop sensibility in their songwriting that shows a great potential.
