LISTEN: Party of the Sun Bring New England Pastoral Folk Charm Via “Wind Up”

Party of the Sun is a psychedelic folk band from New Hampshire, comprised of Ethan McBrien, Rory Hurley, and Garrett Cameron.

Since 2006, both McBrien and Hurley have recorded and performed together in various projects. Throughout his career, McBrien has always had an interest in folk music; writing many songs influenced by the Americana tradition. In the fall of 2015, McBrien and Hurley began recording this material. These collaborative sessions at McBrien’s home – a small sheep farm in Marlborough, NH – were the impetus of what has become Party of the Sun.

On the melodically luscious new single, “Wind Up” from Party of the Sun, there is a welcoming New England pastoral charm. Tasteful guitar touches dance to a subdued rhythmic push as atmospheric variations pillow the sonic undercurrent where the musical worlds of Nick Drake and Ryle Walker collide.

“The first days of winter find us as we work to complete “Wind Up.” Rory’s arrangement for this song’s outro has me giddy – I dance to it on repeat as early November light fills the house,” says McBrien.
