The Sun Parade whirls whimsical folk-pop. Full of lamenting lifts and cool retreats, the band finds some psychedelic in the mundane. Hailing from Northampton, Massachusetts, The Sun Parade formed in 2011, with a sound that is propulsive and dreamy, and lyrics of relatable searching in faded denim. It has two albums in the back pocket: "Yassis" (2012) and its recently-released EP "Heart's Out," on which the band is currently touring. The single "Need You By My Side," off its first album, saw wider acclaim and a top nod on local radio. Unafraid to be theatrical, you can expect some fun from these guys.
