After receiving enormous praise for their previously shared effort ‘Chair’, which was regularly circulated on Amazing Radio upon its release, London-based outfit Third Party Incidents make their stunning return with the rip-roaring new single ‘Vest’.
Bringing back more of that bold and energetic indie-punk vibe they are building for themselves, ‘Vest’ makes for a wonderfully fresh and driven release. Jam-packed with swaggering hooks, a soaring atmosphere, and killer vocals littered throughout, they are certainly looking to cement themselves as one of the more engaging new bands on the rise right now.
Third Party Incidents have been a blossoming band/bromance for five years in the making. The four-piece lineup is built up of: Showfield (vocals), The Flying Ganesh (lead guitar), TC Free (bass), and Stef “the drummer” Hale (drums).
‘Vest’, their second release, is a short/snappy rock ‘n’ roll banger with a catchy chorus and erratic rhythm that will keep you on your toes. The remainder of the 5 track EP will be drip-fed to the public over the course of the next 7 months, leaving them salivating for more with each intoxicating bite.
The Video: Showfield’s moving out of his Brick Lane flat after 8 years, a celebratory send-off? Perch The Flying Ganesh perilously on the ‘balcony’, fire up some amps on the lane, hail some percussion on the pavement, arm TC Free & Showfield with wireless guitars, and you have the potential for a spectacle. A helping hand from one of the OG fans ‘The Robster’, responsible for causing a traffic diversion added a je ne sais quoi… This was followed by a two- year hiatus, during which time Showfield developed a number of new songs with a vision to rebuild the band as a four-piece. Thankfully, the stars were on his side, and soon enough, meets TC Free, a fresh-faced Australian in the heart of London, while on their respective dates at a bar.
The backstory: Stef and Tom initially connected via an online dating app for musicians (cute!). It was a match made in heaven, and soon enough, they were off and running with their own; a loud and fast two-piece punk rock band. They gained some great traction in the underground music scenes of London, often known for their guerrilla street gigs; which accumulated into a debaucherous self-funded tour of Europe in a dilapidated postal van. While TC didn’t know how to play bass at the time, he did carry a vibey energy, and that’s all that mattered.
Soon after, the gang then meets Ganesh, a wild-eyed Floridian flying through the streets of Oxford and soon to be moving to London following his studies. This experienced guitarist, songwriter and vocalist in his own right, was the final special sauce required. Soon enough, Third Party Incidents 2.0 was born, straight into the fires of 2020 and out the other end with a set of songs ready for the newly freed public.
