Andy Shauf - Early To The Party




ANDY SHAUF RELEASES NEW VIDEO FOR
 “EARLY TO THE PARTY”
 INTERNATIONALLY ACCLAIMED ALBUM
THE PARTY
IN STORES NOW
Andy Shauf has delivered a delightfully surreal new video for his song “Early To The Party.” The track is from Shauf’s critically heralded album The Party, which Stereogum called “a lovely, luxuriant thing” and the Independent described as “a baroque-pop exercise with echoes of Seventies smarties like Harry Nilsson, Randy Newman and Steely Dan.”
In a recent Washington Post piece on the resurgence of concept albums, they write ofThe Party, “the songs themselves are rhythmically taut and painstakingly arranged, underscoring the tension wafting through the room… Love triangles, trapezoids and pentagons quickly collapse into existential loneliness and supernatural weirdness.”
The new clip, directed by Luke McCutcheon & Michael Yablonski (Andrew Bird, Young Galaxy), depicts an offbeat and surreal party attended by an collection of eccentric Twin Peaks-like characters. They socialize with one another, dance alone, and eventually engage in a strange party game which ends on a both poignant and unnerving note.
