New World Artists, Exclusive Booking Agents for Party Dozen.
Party Dozen is a sonic project loosely based on improvisation by saxophonist Kirsty Tickle and percussionist Jonathan Boulet. Party Dozen released their debut LP ‘The Living Man’ to critical acclaim in 2017 under their own label Grupo Records. Both artists describe this record as their most self-satisfying musical release to date, and it received airplay on FBi Radio, Triple J, 4ZZZ, 2SER and was Album of the Week on FBi Radio. Since then, Party Dozen have been honing their craft on stage, pushing the boundaries of how much noise two people can produce from their instruments, and exploring and progressing the limits of their own artistry and ability.
The video for their single ‘Straights’ received notable praise, and helped the band receive a showcase spot at Bigsound 2017 and pushed them out of Sydney DIY obscurity. Known for a loud, wild and technically enthralling live show, Party Dozen have have been included in lineups for Falls Festival, MONA FOMA, Bad Friday, Dark Mofo and Farmer and the Owl and have shared the stage with the likes of Liars (UK), These New South Whales, Tropical F*ck Storm and Body Type. Party Dozen are set to release their second LP in 2020.
