New Music: You Say Party! We Say Die!

My favourite band of the moment is probably Abbotsford dance rockers, You Say Party! We Say Die! Their intriguing new wave sound is joyous and powerful to rock out to.

Their latest album, XXXX, which stands for "love" is laced with danceable tunes mixed with a rough rock sound and ethereal lyrics. Every track is infused with a kind of energy and raw appeal that is refreshing and highly enjoyable. Each song on XXXX conveys its own story and momentum in creative ways. I hate to make musical comparisons, but there is an undeniable quality that resembles the magic of Karen O and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. My affinity for rock bands featuring female lead singers with reckless abandon continues as You Say Party! We Say Die! has refined their unique sound to new heights.

You Say Party! We Say Die! will be playing for free at the Surrey 2010 Celebration Site in Holland Park on February 28 and head out on a tour of Canada in April.
