Retirement Party

Retirement Party are a three-piece emo/indie/punk from Chicago, Illinois that formed in 2016. Their debut EP, Strictly Speaking came out early last year, and has garnered a ton of attention since then. They play an energetic style of pop punk similar to bands like P.S. Eliot, with upbeat instrumentals and dense lyrics (incredible ones at that, be sure to check them out). Since then, they’ve joined the already-impressive Counter Intuitive Records roster for their debut LP, Somewhat Literate, which was officially released today. Upon first listen, they’ve come through with an amazing batch of songs, with some heavier, technical guitar work than their clean emo debut. Retirement Party have an incredible energy, with some exceptional vocals and lyrics. Somewhat Literate came out at the perfect time, and will definitely be getting multiple spins this summer. If high-octane, wordy pop punk sounds appealing, check this band out. Enjoy.
