Nobody knows how to throw a party quite like New Yorkers. The ultimate melting pot of all cultures, ethnicities, sexualities, gender orientations, and beyond, it churned out the golden days of disco, punk, and the club kid movement. Anyone who’s lived there knows it makes nightlife a lifestyle.
In The Knocks’ new video for “House Party,” they epitomize that lifestyle with a gathering of New York’s most colorful creatives. The collab with Captain Cuts is a perfect party track with a video full of downtown party passion that perfectly complements it.
“We wanted this video to capture the essence of weird New York and the different kinds, colors and shapes of people you run into going out in the city,” JPatt of The Knocks tellPaper. “We came up partying with the director in New York and running around town together, so we knew he’d be able to capture it perfectly. All the kids cast for this video live and breathe New York, and are from a scene of young creatives from all different worlds.”
