From the barren moors of North Yorkshire, Avalanche Party are taking on the world with their explosive new single, ‘I’m So Wet’.
I need a cold shower after listening to this one. I feel like I’ve been romanced by Oscar the Grouch, or some other filthy animal off the streets.
Avalanche Party, a grizzly quintet hailing from t’North Yorkshire Moors, have had a hell of a journey so far. Supporting the likes of Public Enemy (yes, THAT Public Enemy) and VANT, and receiving high praise from his holiness Huw Stephens and the wonderful Steve Lamacq as well as bagging themselves slots at Reading and Leeds Festivals and a session at 6music with Vic Galloway. After the success of ‘Solid Gold’, released in 2016, Avalanche Party set the bar higher with the untempered ‘I’m So Wet’, setting the stage for a hefty European Tour and their Debut EP set for release later this year.
Released through Leeds indie label Clue Records (Team Picture, Allusondrugs), the new single ‘I’m So Wet’ is a firey belter alight with crackling guitars and a smokey organ. Speaking about the single, frontman and guitarist Jordan Bell says:
“Forged from a desire for a hot opening statement – a throbbing, pulsating, slinking, rhythmic tour de force. This is a song born from staring at the Irish Sea, in all its frothing, rolling, flirtatious glory, battered and broken by the gale and rock to which it is eternally bound. A tempting, trembling, perilous vista which, direct to our brain, shouted ‘Yes! …I’m So Wet’. With water comes life – and we are alive indeed.”
Avalanche Party‘s new single ‘I’m So Wet’ is strikingly toxic with a crippling chorus and a thunderous finale. Verses are misty and tense, accompanied by the slimy croons of Jordan Bell. There’s certainly no end to the wrath of Avalanche Party, earning a reputation for their vehement fury on (or rather, off) stage, and after completing dates in Serbia and Slovenia, Avalanche Party are capping things off with a set of UK Dates.
