I haven’t been covering new bands on the blog as much as I should be, therefore I am going to make a conceited effort in the future to keep my ears to the floor for new acts.
The first of which is Morning Parade, a five-piece band from Essex. To me they sound like a more accessible version of Delphic, not that I prefer them at all, but that’s who I liken them to the most.
“We have a rule,” they say. “Whenever we write something, we ask ourselves, ‘Can you see 100,000 people singing this back to you?’ If not, we get rid of it. We want to be huge.”
Big talk. Whether they manage to achieve their target still remains to be seen, but you can watch the video for their first single Under The Stars above.
