First Play Friday // ‘I Only Party (w my Baby)’ – SLUGS

In case you missed it, I started a NEW series on the blog a few weeks ago where I show off a new – or upcoming- release I’ve been listening to.

Previous tracks include ‘I Did It To Myself’ by Dakota Jones, ‘Powerhouse’ by Stranger Girl, ‘Safe Bet’ by Cucamaras , ‘Fall Away’ by Rowdy Outsider and ‘The Absence of You’ by The Islas.

For the sixth post of the series, I’m spotlighting ‘I Only Party (w my Baby)’ by SLUGS. The Los-Angeles based four-piece show off their alternative rock sound with a track that’s full of catchy beats, melodic harmonies and gripping hooks.

From the opening line, the gorgeous vocal harmonies take the listener through saving the fun bits of life for friends and loved ones.

Regarding the track, singer/songwriter/guitarist Marissa Longstreet explains how the track was inspired by an interview with Avril Lavigne, saying “(Avril) had talked about her marriage rule with then-husband Chad Kroger that they only “party” with each other. I thought that was a funny form of devotion; bounding your debauchery exclusively to your partnership.”.

The track is playful, with colourful lyrics and hazy guitar and drums. It has a laidback feel to it whilst also being a track you can’t help but listen to on repeat.

The track is about fun times with your nearest and dearest and — after a year of minimal contact with those people, and people in general, for the majority of us —- it feels very relevant right now. This is my first experience of this band and their sound but I’m excited to see where they go from here.
