The indie-pop quartet consists of Keelan O’Reilly, Peter Toal, Colin Peppard and Matthew O’Reilly.
Dublin natives Post-Party have released the video for their brand new single ‘Wasting Time’, incorporating shots of the band performing with DIY-inspired visuals.
Recorded in Dublin’s famous Windmill Lane Studios, ‘Wasting Time’ sees Post-Party explore the notion that not everything lasts forever, but that's alright. The fast-paced song celebrates short-lived connections, creating a track for people who like the guitar lines of The Strokes, the synths of The Killers and the vocal melodies of Blossoms and The Vaccines.
'Wasting Time' has so far been featured on key playlists, including Spotify's New Music Friday, Hot New Bands, Fresh Finds: Rock, The Indie List and A Breath of Fresh Eire.
“The last year has given us the opportunity to really build up on our skills in other areas such as filmmaking," Post-Party said of the vide.
"We shot the music video for ‘Wasting Time’ with each of the band members shot individually, in separate locations. The editing process was tedious but we got there in the end and I don’t we don’t think we could be happier with the result."
"There's a strong parallel between the nostalgic feeling in the song and the VHS footage, which is why we decided to shoot with one of our parent’s old Sony hand-cams," the outfit add.
"There was a bittersweet contrast between the VHS and Digitally-shot footage, creating a stage of colours on which we performed the single."
Proving themselves as one of the Irish acts to watch in 2021, the group's recent single ‘Being Honest’ was featured in Channel 4 show Made in Chelsea and was picked for Vevo’s Incoming Indie playlist.
Since forming the band in 2018, Post-Party have played Galway's Roisin Dubh, sold out headline Dublin shows, toured Ireland, performed at Electric Picnic and Independence, supported the likes of Miles Kane and The Sherlocks as well as playing their own headline show at London's Islington.
Drawing from episodes of their formative years, Post-Party imbue their guitar pop with a honed youthful energy of catchy hooks and bouncy lyrics. After spending the course of 2020 writing new material, the band are set to release much awaited new music in the months to come.
The band have set the bar high this year, with the quartet aching to bring fun, jangly guitar pop to the masses with energetic live performances.
