June 14th will see the release of Funeral Party's UK debut single NYC Moves To The Sound Of LA released through Jive Records. The four piece who hail from east LA have recently impressed US gig goers who got to see the band support Julian Casablancas on his solo tour.
Vocalist Chad Elliot explains the lyrics behind NYC Moves To The Sound Of LA: 'The song is meant to insult New York and LA, which is why I sing 'pick up the trends you dumb Americans.' 'New York moves to the sound of LA' disparages the world around Funeral Party, the world we have no choice but to engage. It's about hypocrisy.'
Funeral Party is: Chad Elliot (Vocals/Keys), James Lawrence Torres (Guitar), and Kimo Kauhola (Bass)
