The Sun Parade

Catch up with The Sun Parade at The Great Scott on 7/30

When we last saw The Sun Parade , they had released their 2014 single, "Heart's Out." Since then they've played a ton of shows, sucessfully crowd-funded for a debut LP and are now putting on the finsihing touches of that said album.  Due to these devleopments it seems like some re-introductions are in order, no? Their offerings to date have all bursted with melody, espeically their tom-tom heavy percussion.  Their vocalist also has that unique quality of being able to inflect boat loads of emotion into his voice without making the music feel sappy or overwrought. Tying these ends together are clean, simple but not dull guitar patterns which provide a nice anchor for the previously mentioned elements. You can check out The Sun Parade at The Great Scott on 7/30, where they promised they'll play tracks off their forthcoming full-length. — Henry Solotaroff-Webber, Photo by Georgia Rae Teesma

   

The Sun Parade's Heart's Out EP

The Sun Parade’s Hearts Out EP feels like a care-free walk through the woods of Western Mass. The light hearted single “Hearts Out” showcases the vocal prowess of lead singer Chris Jennings, with a smooth and bright tone and surprisingly rich falsetto. They’re in the midst of tour right now and will be playing Great Scott in Allston, along with the ladies of And The Kids, this Wednesday February 25th, and again in New Haven, CT on the 26th. So Eastern MA and South Eastern CT, be sure not to miss these killer showcases what’s coming out of the Amherst area. You can download the EP here.
