Gold Coast's punk-rockers Serial Killer Dinner Party have just released their four-track debut EP I Know, That You Know, That You Need It. You can listen HERE like Roo did.
Know Her Namestarts with feedback and musical moodiness before kicking into double-time punk with hook-heavy melodic guitar, driven rhythm guitar, huge bass and thunderous drums. Characterful and gravelly vocals are supported by incredibly tight backing vocals in all the right places.
Nothing To Lose grabs the ear immediately with a disco drum beat and ringing guitar chords before hillbilly-esque/punk lead guitar licks. This track is a blend of many influences that still sound like Serial Killer Dinner Party. The musicianship and songwriting and arrangement prowess of this group stands out and all the energy of their live shows is expertly captured.
The Ones The group’s knack for energy and incredible hook writing is instantly clear in this tight, fast and catchy song.
No Prince Charming After a little bit of humour is a heavy sounding song that utilises pop-punk and skater-punk influences from the late 90s and early 00s. This track is tight and fast and still catchy enough to sing along to.
This EP is an incredible introduction to the passion, energy and skill of Serial Killer Dinner Party.
You can catch their equally incredible live show at Greaser on December 8th for FREE w/ No Quarter / The Way We Were / All Hours.
