5 Songs I Love w/ Third Party Incidents

London-four piece Third Party Incidents have just dropped their new indie-punk anthem 'Vest'. The new track demonstrates their unique sound made up of various musical influences. We wanted to find out more about the music these guys love and why - check out each hand-picked selection from the band members below and don't forget to watch the video for Vest' too!

Semi-Charmed Life by Third Eye Blind

The clear winner for me is ‘Semi Charmed Life’ by Third Eye Blind. It’s an anthem that defines the golden years of pop punk, and my life philosophy of believing in the sand beneath my toes. - Stefan I've Got A Feeling by The Beatles

I’ve been listening a lot to them in the last few years (I’m a latecomer to the Beatles). The song is so uplifting and like most Beatles songs, it’s incredibly well written on all levels. Also, a fly-on-the-wall documentary came out last year about this album which really gave me an insight into their writing and as people which made me love the song even more. I’d like to write at the same level; their voices are so good, yet so raw. - Scholfield (Showfield) Cough Syrup by Young the Giant

As there’s so many bangers and it’s hard to pick a favorite, I’ll go off of nostalgia and sentimental value and say Cough Syrup by Young the Giant. To me it’s such a classic, somewhat dreamy indie rock song with just subtle enough lyrics - all things I love in a song. More so, it’s the first “harder” song I ever learned on guitar and the first song I saw at their live gig way back in 2011. That moment was actually both surprising and inspiring to me because it’s also when I saw that Young the Giant was fronted by an Indian-American guy, something pretty much unheard of in the mainstream indie/alternative rock world. Since then Young the Giant, and in particular Cough Syrup, has always been one of my favorites, and it takes me back every time I hear it. - Ganesh You Can Call Me Al by Paul Simon

My favourite song is, and has always been You Can Call Me Al by Paul Simon. It has all the ingredients of an absolute classic, smoothly intoxicating percussion, hard hitting brass section, catchy chorus, all driven by seemingly nonsensical lyrics that in reality tell a subtly deep story of Paul’s visit to apartheid South Africa. Not to mention it’s got the best bass/hand percussion breakdown ever created. - Freeman Don’t Threaten Me With A Good Time by Panic! At The Disco

As a band, we love this one because it’s just a simple song about debauchery and having a good time, and we like to think that’s the vibe we go for when we play. It’s not meant to be deep. It’s just a downright catchy tune that heavily features three commodities that are as expensive as they are unnecessary. It’s a great song to get hyped up to, and whenever it comes on, you know it’s time to start jumping off of stuff. - Third Party Incidents
