Indie Rock band Parachute Words discusses a highly important topic in their newest single “Sunshine!!”
The 4-piece guitar-driven band based in London use the opportunity to release a new song discussing global warming and all it’s lovely repercussions on us as a whole. The topic isn’t clear right at the very begining but that is ultimately the point. They use the analogy of a bright sunny day as something we wouldn’t expect with the chorus beginning with “the sun is shining always brighter… the weather’s hot like you like it / the water’s cool like you hoped it” but as the verse progresses you start to find out about the world they’re truthfully describing.
This single follows the release of their latest album One More Time With Feeling, which was the first time they recorded in a proper studio. The band’s DIY attitude is bringing out impressive projects staying true to their honest and rough around the edges aesthetic.
Taking inspiration from American acts like Frankie Cosmos, Car Seat Headrest, Neutral Milk Hotel and Alex G, the band has been playing live for the last three years with Ollie Cox on bass, Tony Lea on guitar, George Barker on drums, Rosa Fisher on violin and Martino on vocals and guitar.
This vibrant single is filled with admirable touches of Indie & Pop sounds encouraging us to hear more of their releases for other important messages. “Sunshine!!” is out on all major streaming platforms!
