NEOROMANTICS Premiere New EP “Homecoming”: OUT NOW

unnamed (2)

Rock band NeoRomantics blend well-structured indie rock with emo elements on their brand new EP “Homecoming,” out TODAY on all streaming platforms. The 5-track collection acts as a beautiful contrast of sorts; while arranged much like a pop record, it is far from one. The record’s lyricism delves into an array of personal topics about relationships, including abandoning those that are toxic, growth, and parental influence on trust. “Homecoming” is the perfect display of the band’s eclecticism, particularly the lead single “Concentrated,” initially released in January. A well-produced and sleek combination of 2000’s emo and mainstream indie rock elements, “Homecoming” is sonically pleasing to the ear, heavy on the heart, and simultaneously thought provoking.

Based in Tulsa, OK, NeoRomantics, four piece rock outfit, was founded by Hagen Pavey and Daniel Anthony Castleberry, in the summer of 2014. Along with staking a claim in their hometown, becoming the first local band to sell out the Tulsa venue, The Vanguard, they have created a following throughout the Midwest and other parts of the country with their shimmery, textural rock sound. Ever since they began touring in the spring of 2016, following the release of their first record ‘Dearly Beloved’, the band has served as ambassadors to the Tulsa scene on the road as well as lending a hand in building the DIY scene at home. In January, 2018, NeoRomantics resurfaced with their single ‘Concentrated’, a darker, more mature take on their previous work which landed them a nod from Alternative Press. Their new EP, ‘Homecoming’ (2018), as unconventional as it is pop-structured, floats somewhere in the space between indie-rock and the emo revival. “Homecoming” is available NOW.

THE KING’S PARADE Release Video For New Single ‘Woman’

‘WOMAN’

VIDEO REVEALED
WATCH HERE

“The sentiment is worthy of praise. So too is the track. With a belting chorus and intelligent lyrics, ‘Woman’ is a rich slice of alt-soul.” – Mahogany

Highly acclaimed London quartet The King’s Parade have revealed the video for their latest single ‘Woman’, which takes aim at the issues of gender inequality prevalent in today’s society.

The video premiered with Happy Magazine who said, “’Woman’ is a refined and thought-provoking clip, sure to leave a major mark across the indie music scene. Clearly, The King’s Parade are cementing their status as one of the most naturally talented and hustling young acts this year.”

Featuring a lone female amongst a sea of larger, anonymous figures in New York, the video highlights the negative attitudes and behaviour towards women. Increasingly shunned and alienated from these more powerful figures, the monochrome aesthetic is broken only by the emergence of a flower, which engulfs the building, before the character blossoms into a soaring creature. Deeply symbolic of patriarchal oppression and how it can be overcome, the video was animated by Lily Fang, who previously made the band’s video for their highly acclaimed single ‘Bunched Up Letters’.

‘Woman’ follows the release of the Haze EP last year which saw the band receive high profile support from BBC 6Music, BBC Introducing, The Independent, Wonderland, Alternative Press, EARMILK and many more.

Its release saw them appear at summer festivals including Secret Garden Party and Cornbury Festival while they played sold out headline shows across the UK and Europe. Most recently The King’s Parade sold out their London release show for ‘Woman’ as well as being nominated for the UMA Choice Award at the forthcoming Unsigned Music Awards 2018.

The King’s Parade breathe fresh life into UK guitar bands. They have developed an exciting new blueprint, which is seeing a loyal and expectant fanbase grow by the day.

‘WOMAN’
NEW SINGLE OUT NOW
LISTEN ON SPOTIFY / SOUNDCLOUD

 

The King’s Parade have today released their brand new single ‘Woman’. The song sees the highly acclaimed London quartet addressing the issues of gender imbalance which are witnessed on a daily basis in society.

‘Woman’ premiered with Mahogany who said, “The sentiment is worthy of praise. So too is the track. With a belting chorus and intelligent lyrics, Woman is a rich slice of alt-soul .”

Frontman Olly Corpe explains, “I see it every day and it never changes. It seems that it’s ingrained and that there’s just this biological barrier that we men can’t or won’t break down. The idea behind the chorus was to try and make the phrase “Like a Woman” celebratory and empowering, rather than derogatory or belittling. It conveys the strength and determination/force of a woman breaking through.

The opening verse depicts a magazine showing a model portraying how she is ‘meant to look’, something we’re all familiar with. The second verse focuses on the biological inequality, which all women have to face; time seems to be against them on almost every level. All of us in the band thought that it was important to voice how we feel and express our respect and admiration for women everywhere. Hopefully it will ring true for everybody who hears it.”

‘Woman’ follows the release of the Haze EP last year which saw the band receive high profile support from BBC 6Music, BBC Introducing, The Independent, Wonderland, Alternative Press, EARMILK and many more.

Its release saw them appear at summer festivals including Secret Garden Party and Cornbury Festival while they played sold out headline shows across the UK and Europe. Most recently The King’s Parade have been nominated for three awards at the Unsigned Music Awards 2018 including Best Record, Best Produced Record and Best Jazz / Blues Act.

The King’s Parade breathe fresh life into UK guitar bands. They have developed an exciting new blueprint, which is seeing a loyal and expectant fanbase grow by the day. They continue to cement their status as one of the most naturally talented and hardworking acts coming from the UK today.
