With cheeky lyrics that bemoan the concept of another trip around the sun and throwing a little soiree where no one even bothers to show up, the accompanying sonics shimmer and shine with synths, cadenced and perfectly processed vocals, and a good time vibe.
Who cares if everyone blows off your party when you can shake your booty to this neo-nu-wave-influenced, funkdafied ‘Birthday Party?’ The song is skittery, genre-bending electro-blast of crunching beats and distorted guitars and it's topped off with vocalist Rob Damiani's ennui-drenched vocals.
But now, the band has taken an already bangin' track and upped the ante tenfold by inviting their current North American tourmates The Home Team,Ryan Oakes, Skyler Acord, and The Color 8 to contribute vocals on a killer remix of the song. This party just evolved into a full-on rager!
Damiani previously said this about the song: "Birthdays can be the absolute worst. You get all hyped up for what you think is a guaranteed top day, but when that doesn't work out you can't help but feel EXTRA bad. I don't really like birthdays because of this, but one year tried throwing a last min shindig and in classic form it was not well attended, haha. I can't say I took it well but my only option was having a party for one and this song is the story of that night."
Don Broco are currently on tour in North America before returning to the UK for an intimate sweaty run of shows this winter, which will see them playing a hits-packed set and getting up, close and personal with their exuberant fan-base.
