PREMIERE: Dance in the shimmering disco sounds of Holiday Party’s new single Run Away

After hiding away in the studio for a number of months, Brisbane’s Holiday Party are back with another shimmering and dreamy disco track.

It’s called Run Away, and we’re stoked to be premiering it for you today.

Run Away, the shimmering and dreamy new track from Brisbane collective Holiday Party, is like the soundtrack to a high-school disco where someone spiked the punch.

Founded by duo Mel Tickle and Luke McDonald, the former-duo now operate as a collective; with an ever-evolving roster of live band members and writing collaborators involved in the project.

On their new track Run Away, the collective navigate layers upon layers of glittery synths, airy production, and infectious vocal hooks to craft a sound that belongs entirely to themselves.

It’s textured and vibrant, and we guarantee it’ll be stuck in your head for weeks.

Lyrically Run Away was influenced by Jean Cocteau’s Les Enfants Terribles in which two siblings spend their lives destroying each other as a game” says McDonald.

From there it developed into a twisted flip on pop songs of the 50s and 60s, taking notes from the structure and sentiment of songs like Then He Kissed Me by The Crystals and Leader Of The Pack by The Shangri-Las… only in our version the sentiment is different.”
