Jazz Party have just released their sophomore single ‘Talking In Your Sleep’. Known for their crazy gigs at venues like Shadow Electric, and most recently at The Evelyn; the collective (which features members from The Cat Empire, The Putbacks, Vulture St Tape Gang and Laneous & The Family Yah), have slowly but consistently been growing their following through showcasing their New Orleans drenched swing party music during a long run of residencies around Melbourne.
‘Talking In Your Sleep’ is an ode to the smoky, moody, and dark vibe of an old retro jazz bar. With vocalist Loretta Miller at the helm, the ballad delivers a saddening and heartbreaking emotion, in the midst of a doo-wop aesthetic and production.
Jazz Party have been doing residencies at a number of different venues over the last couple of years, and have just finished up their Monday night January residency at The Evelyn. You can catch Jazz Party launching their new single at the following dates:
