1,2,3 – “Going Away Party”

The fellas of 1,2,3 (formerly of Pittsburgh’s version of  The Takeover UK) return with their latest 7” single “Going Away Party” off UK indie imprint Chess Club/Rough Trade. Boasting a soupy disco bass line and dripping with androgynous glam sex appeal, the track is yet another fine step in the progression of 1,2,3’s sound.  While the group’s first single “Confetti” was comprised almost entirely of a slow and boozy guitar stomp, “Going Away Party” is nimble and tight,  showcasing a handful of small production flourishes (hand claps, whistles, a bongo/bossa nova breakdown in the bridge) and a massive sunshower of a hook. After spending the better part of the year in the UK hype machine, keep an eye out for 1,2,3 coming back to Pittsburgh soon.
