The story so far…
At the turn of 2023, The Last Dinner Party was little more than a new name being shared amongst those that had caught them live. Great songs, strong aesthetic. April’s release of the moreish, dark guitar-pop of Nothing Matters marked an introduction that took the online world by storm, and yet behind all the excitement and narrative was a fantastically confident indie-rock song by a band doing it the old-fashioned way, out on the road.
Following a heady first-on performance to a packed crowd at Glastonbury, The Last Dinner Party released the gloriously infectious Sinner, before filling tents throughout the country’s biggest festivals. Headline shows followed suit, selling out two nights at EartH, five debut stateside gigs and a forthcoming album release show at the 3000-capacity Roundhouse months in advance. The gothic rock of ‘My Lady of Mercy’ and anthemic balladry of ‘On Your Side’ have since backed up the quintet’s beguiling live presence with an undeniable songwriting prowess.
At the turn of 2024, The Last Dinner Party have won themselves a first BRIT (Rising Star), and voted BBC Radio 1’s Sound of 2024. They’ll spend much of it joining dots from city to city on a road map across the globe. That whirlwind has barely even begun.
