Party Lines’ sophomore release presents a strong danceable and emotional contribution to the Rad Summer catalog!
Party Lines make their return with Fool for Losin You, their second release on Rad Summer. The lead and title song sets the tone for the entire five track project with the group’s trademark 80’s influenced synth funk sounds. Between new lead singer Ed Lanier’s soulful voice and a noticeable maturity in song writing, Party Lines have crafted an EP that is not only danceable but also lyrically compelling.
