FOLK | The Sun Parade

by

comment

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.

The Sun Parade plays with Fowls and Faux Leather Jacket on Thursday, January 15, at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. 8:30 p.m. $7-$9. bugjar.com; thesunparade.com.
