Girl, I can’t understand it, why you want to hurt me
Hardcore Darkwave act Neon Funeral have unveiled their video for their cover of Eddie Murphy’s “Party All the Time”, a song originally recorded in 1985, and written and produced by Rick James. It was the lead single from Murphy’s 1985 debut album How Could It Be.
Now, Neon Funeral has given the song a new snarling vocal darkwave twist, just in time to party this Halloween.
Watch the video below:
Neon Funeral began back in 2019 as a project between roommates at the time, vocalist Randy Robertson and guitarist Kevin Garetz, who set out to write a song showcasing their love for new-wave and post-punk, while at the same time, reflecting on being brought up in the same North Jersey hardcore scene back in the mid-2000s.
What started initially as just an idea quickly grew into a full-fledged band backed by members Michael Caballero (synth), , and Robbie Miranda (bass).
With this music, Neon Funeral combines hardcore and screamo vocals with darkwave melodies, taking things a step further than bands such as Beastmilk, but lying someplace scattered in between the goth club-friendly groove of She Past Away and the sonic assault of Deafheaven.
“Party All the Time” is out now via Cleopatra Records, in addition to Neon Funeral’s self-titled EP is out now.
