Innerpartysystem Announce New EP Release
(Press Here) Innerpartysystem will release their new 6-song EP, Never Be Content, digitally on Feb 22, 2011 and physically on March 29, 2011.
Never Be Content, which introduces an expanded electronic soundscape for the band, was recorded at their home studio in Pennsylvania, as well as Hoboken, NJ, Los Angeles and London.
While the trio recorded and produced most of the tracks themselves, renowned producer Richard X (MIA, Kelis, Annie, Rachel Stevens) contributed additional production and mixing.
The songs on Never Be Content, born near the end of the band’s extensive touring behind their 2008 self-titled debut, reflect an organic shift in their creative output. The punk rock edge of their earlier music falls into the background in this new set of songs and at the forefront is a compelling brand of electronic dance music. Self-described gearheads with an infatuation for synthesizing sounds, Innerpartysystem took off their headphones just long enough to decide on the EP’s title. Beyond that, they could be found with headphones firmly planted against their ears, building, re-tooling, layering, and tinkering with the new songs that have now come to mark an exciting evolution for the band.
Drawing inspiration from genres that span classic rock to drum and bass to smooth jazz to metal is just a run-of the-mill day for this band. With an appealing pop sensibility and a finely-tuned songcraft, Never Be Content, which includes a new edit of current single “American Trash,” runs the gambit from the melodic, bubbling “Squid” to the evocative and dance-floor friendly “Not Getting Any Better” to the crunchy, moody synths of “Money.” With a producer’s mindset and a songwriter’s pen, Innerpartysystem dove into discovering, creating and manipulating a new universe of musical influences, sonic textures and programming techniques. The result is an EP rich with innovation and originality.
