With the release of their Rory McCallum and Adam Haggard co-produced debut single “Ready For It,” the Scottish indie pop outfit WUKASA exploded across the British scene and elsewhere, receiving praise and attention for a sound that has been described as blend of Glass Animals, Everything Everything, Easy Life, and HONNE. As a result, they’ve had their material appear on Spotify’s New Music Friday, Topshops‘ worldwide in-store playlist, Made In Chelsea, The Official Premier League and Love Island among others.
The Scottish outfit’s latest single “Party People” is a coolly swaggering pop confection built around tweeter and woofer rattling 808s, skittering beats, twinkling synths and dreamily delivered vocals paired with a remarkably catchy hook that’s perfect for both the dance floor and the lounge.
WUKASA explains that “Party People” lyrically characterizes that person we’ve all wanted to be at some point in our lives — the one in charge, the one in total control. The person who makes no apologies, knows they’re the best and doesn’t care what anyone thinks. “The song demands you ‘own it’ no matter how bad things get,” the Scottish outfit explains.
