The new song from the Dublin-based band, featuring Keelan O'Reilly, Peter Toal, Colin Peppard and Matthew O’Reilly, has already featured on Spotify's New Music Friday, Breath of Fresh Eire and Hottest New Bands playlists.
Tell us three things about yourself?
My name is Keelan O’Reilly. I’m the lead vocalist in Post-Party, and I’m a Wikipedia enthusiast.
How would you describe your music?
Energetic, feel-good indie rock.
Who are your musical inspirations?
We all love the The Killers, Foals and all that 2000’s indie rock scene but we also really love the energy and feel of 80’s new wave in bands like The Cure.
How did you occupy yourself during the coronavirus lockdown?
We usually write as a unit so 2020 brought some challenges and made us try loads of new ways to make music. We tried writing over Zoom, and it wasn’t for us, but we were able to find a system that worked, and we managed to write some new material that we’re super excited about.
What’s your favourite song right now?
Right now, we’re loving Kynsy. I think her new song Happiness Isn’t a Fixed State is my personal favourite; actually, her brother Cian plays a lead role in the video for our newest release Being Honest.
Favourite lyric of all time?
"Living is easy with eyes closed, Misunderstanding all you see" - The Beatles, Strawberry Fields Forever. I love the surrealism in Lennon’s lyrics. I couldn’t pick one, but this is definitely one of my favourites.
If you could only listen to one song for the rest of your life what would it be?
Everybody Wants To Rule The World by Tears for Fears. Can you blame me? Best song ever to not reach number one?
Where can people find your music/more information?
