Car Party, a brand new Baltimore band, threw out their first work, “Excuses,” in the fall of 2010. Influenced by bands such as “Hot Hot Heat,” and “The Academy is,” their freshman release carries four songs that sound so unique, but similar to the sound you’ve always wanted more of. And who better than Car Party to give it to you? Perfect example, we’ve all heard countless bands whine about “significant others.” But like pros already, Car Party’s catchy line, “The promises you make to break are getting old, and I can't take, another day with hazel eyes, lying to my face,” offers a metaphor that we all can appreciate.  With just 11 short months under their belt, the band’s first single, “Someone Like Me,” already has local radio play. With another EP and single on the way, things are only looking up for Car Party in the future. Having strong vocals, catchy riffs, and steady beats throughout, (especially found in “Debra”), it’s safe to say the quartette definitely put together something worth grabbing. Be sure to catch their show on their next tour, and look for their sophomore effort around next spring.
